Richmond Chapter 2: Exploration of the Great Plains

This chapter goes over the first Europeans entering the Midwest and Kansas. It is divided up between the Spanish and French followed by the American Exploration after the start of the nineteenth century. A teacher could use the material in this chapter by having students make a chart showing not only the goals of the explorations, the motivations of the explorations, the results of the movements and most importantly look at how the different groups viewed the state of Kansas. Another aspect might include how the different explorations dealt with the Indian groups that they met along the way.
