    Default Lewis and Clark Commemorative Nickel sets

    I am providing this link for fellow educators who may be interested in incorporating U.S. Coins into lesson plans. The 2004 and 2005 are interesting visual items to capture the attention and interest of students studying U.S. History. Implementing the four different designs of the Lewis and Clark Nickel series of 2004 and 2005, in 4 stages of progression, unveiling one design for each of the four stages of your lesson plan (using one design at a time, helping to keep the attention of your students) will be both interesting and fun. You can begin with Jefferson's plan and mission purpose, starting with the Peace Medal design. The Peace Medal design is based on the Congressional Medals that Lewis and Clark were to give to natives they visited during their journey westward. Use the Peace Medal design of 2004 to begin the study, to introduce them to these historical coins, to create a realm of curiosity for the students of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. When the Lewis and Clark journey begins, you can use the Sacagawea Dollar coin to introduce the students to her, Sacagawea, 16 year old feamle Native American guide who led Lewis and Clark across the continent. Then, using the second Lewis and Clark Nickel design of 2004, the Keelboat Design, you can create a vision of the boat on which Lewis and Clark transported the supplies needed for the trip. The expedition used a specially built Keelboat to carry their supplies and equipment, averaging 15 miles per day. Then, you will use the American Bison design of 2005 to depict one of the many animals of interest which Lewis and Clark observed during the travels across the Midwest. Finally, to add to your explaining the amazement Lewis and Clark felt at their first view of the Pacific Ocean, use the Ocean in View "O' the Joy" design to explain one of the final entires into the journal of the expedition. You will also enjoy the eye appeal of the 4 types of 2004-2005 Lewis and Clark Expedition commemorative nickel coins. Keep them in the museum quality coin display holders to preserve the coins due to the fact that in addition to the value as educational tools, they are valuable collectors items. Keeping them in the holders will preserve them in mint ate, the value of pristine, mint condition specimens of any U.S. coin most usually increases of time. You will cherrish these special U.S. Government issued commemorative coins as educational tools, works of art and collectors items in the years to come. Be sure to visit to view the designs and purchase sets of the Lewis and Clark commemorative nickel coins at a special educators discount price. Happy Educating and Happy Collecting
