This download includes two culminating project ideas for your Native American Thematic Unit.
The first is a research project on the various Native American Regions and the Tribes within those regions. Students would use the provided research outline to record characteristics of their Region and Tribe. Once the students have collected all the information, they will complete a mural or landscape poster that includes all important information from their research.
The second project is a student-made Totem Pole. It also comes with a Brainstorming outline to help the students plan before they construct. I have included suggested Reading Comprehensions and a short video to provide your students with a better understanding of the purpose of a Totem Pole.
