Product Description
This mini unit on the Iroquois Creation Myth was created for seventh grade students but can easily be modified for younger grade levels. It begins after students have learned about the Native American cultures. I begin with a discussion of creation stories and how they explain natural disasters as well as things we can't explain - like creation. I ask them to recall Bible stories about how the Earth and man were created. Then they read the Iroquois Creation Story, focusing on Tier Two words they may be unfamiliar with. After reading the story aloud, students then work with a partner to sequence the story - first with teacher events and then finishing the remaining without teacher assistance. Finally, students practice questions that model Common Core types of questions and force students to use textual evidence to support their answers. The activity is set up so students first answer the questions on their own and then go back to answer the same/similar questions in a multiple choice format - thus allowing the teacher to have a discussion about test taking strategies and tips as well. Thank you for looking and I hope you enjoy it.
