Montana History

Mrs. Rachelle Black

From its storied peaks to its windswept plains, Montana has long embodied the American West.
This semester-long class will introduce students to the people and cultures that have shaped
the state’s history. Students will learn about Native American history, the Lewis and Clark
Expedition, fur trappers, pioneers and other historical figures. We will discuss the state’s early
economic drivers such as the mining industry and ranching. We will also spend time learning
about the state’s geography by analyzing maps and learning place names. Student’s will have
the opportunity to create two projects/presentations during the semester.
