This PowerPoint is intended to help students gain a better understanding of the Creek & Cherokee Indians of Georgia through the use of pictures & captions. The content in the slideshow is aligned to the Georgia Performance Standards.
I found that my students were always asking to see actual pictures as examples to topics we were discussing during our Creek & Cherokee unit, so I decided to create a PowerPoint that would provide them with real-life examples.
At the end of the PowerPoint, I have included a quiz (and answer sheet) to test students’ knowledge of the material, after viewing the slideshow.
SS2H2 – The student will describe the Georgia Creek and Cherokee cultures of the past in terms of tools, clothing, homes, ways of making a living, and accomplishments.
a. Describe the regions in Georgia where the Creeks and Cherokees lived and how the people used their local resources.
b. Compare and contrast the Georgia Creek and Cherokee cultures of the past to Georgians today.
SS2G2 – The student will describe the cultural and geographic systems associated with the historical figures and Georgia’s Creeks and Cherokees
a. Identify specific locations significant to the life and times of each historic figure on a political map
d. Trace examples of travel and movement of these historic figures and their ideas across time
b. Describe how place (physical and human characteristics) had an impact on the lives of each historical figure
c. Describe how each historic figure adapted to and was influenced by his/her environment
e. Describe how the region in which these historic figures lived affected their lives and compare these regions to the region in which the students live
I also have interactive books on the Creek and Cherokee of Georgia that follow along with the Georgia 2nd grade standards.
