Studying the Creek and Cherokee cultures? These postcards are a perfect way to tie social studies to visual arts. 2nd graders (and other students!) will love creating a postcard that reflects the culture of one or both Native American tribes. Simply print these out, and have students fold the cards in half. Have students draw a visual representation of cultural artifacts, day to day life, or a specific scene on the front side. Using the back side, students can identify which region of Georgia the Cherokee and Creek settled. They can also use the blank space to describe their drawing and the corresponding culture.
