It explains how Tecumseh wanted to unite all Native American tribes into one nation to stop the expansion of white settlers into their lands. It describes Tecumseh's talents as a leader, speaker, and warrior. There are two pages of multiple choice questions. The ten questions are designed to build the reading comprehension skills of determining main idea, identifying details, recognizing character traits, and making generalizations. Vocabulary words taught and tested are unite and alliance. A color drawing of Chief Tecumseh is included.The fifth page of the lesson is the answer key. The lesson is a word document that you can easily print off and modify if you desire.
