This writing activity is great for reviewing the different seasonal adaptations the Eastern Woodland Indians used to survive and secure food. This activity has two parts: A Help Wanted Poster where students describe the skills necessary for the seasonal job. For example, in the Spring Help Wanted Poster students will need to describe fishing as an essential skill. The other part is then a response, where students evaluate which seasonal job they would want and then send in a job application describing why they would be a good fit.
