Creek and Cherokee: Poster Activity
Native American tribes from Georgia. Let your students show what they have learned about the Cherokee and Creeks by using this 8.5 x 11 poster (landscape) that focuses on topics related to the tribes.
This poster will look great hanging outside your classroom and parents will enjoy reading them when they are sent home.
The Creek and Cherokee poster activity has plenty of places for students to show their creativity, like when they add touches of color and when they illustrate the homes.
This would make a great individual research assignment, partner activity, or homework activity. Use it as you are going over the tribes or possibly for a review before standardized testing time. Use it in your classroom however you would like.
There is a lot of information on one page. Because of this, writing space is limited. Students will need to answer the question directly without giving too much extra information. You can judge that better by looking at the thumbnail image above. Two copies are included. One copy has slightly larger spacing between lines, but it has fewer lines.
The sections for the students to fill out are:
*place for name
*In what part of Georgia were the two tribes located? Write on map and tell the location.
*How did they meet their basic needs? Fill in the chart for food, water, and shelter.
*What natural resources did the Creek and Cherokee depend on? List in box
*How would the tribes protect themselves? Describe briefly.
*How did life change for the two tribes once settlers came to Georgia?
*Who was Sequoyah,and how did he influence the Cherokee way of life?
*Give an example of bartering/trading and how it helped the tribes get what they wanted.
*How would the two tribes get resources that were not in their regions?
*Illustrate a home for each tribe.
