Do you have a hard time finding resources for the NEW Tennessee Social Studies Standards?
This product aligns with the New TN State Standards for Social Studies.
Cherokee, Chickasaw, and Creek Indians (Standard 4.2)
There are three nonfiction booklets for your students to read independently, with partner/groups, or whole group. Each nonfiction booklet will be printed front/back and then folded in half. The passages were written in kid friendly terms, but with academic vocabulary to stretch their thinking and knowledge. There is a small vocabulary section on the back of each booklet.
After we read and discuss that particular Indian group, we complete the Close Read Checklist activity. My class works in groups to complete this. I want them to read things more than once to fully grasp the concept and the culture of the Indian groups. My kids love this!
There is a Triple Venn Diagram activity. You can do this as whole group, ,partners, groups, or independently. That's the beauty of this product. You can take the materials and make it fit the needs of your classroom.
There is also an Interactive Notebook Activity for this skill. If you don't do Interactive Notebooks, NO WORRIES! This activity would be a great assessment at the end of the unit. There are four pages that create a packet. Each page has a tab to identify the types of Indians. Each page has short answer questions for the students to complete to assess their comprehension.
I hope you find this product helpful and you are able to have a fun time learning about the Indians in Tennessee with your students while hitting the rigor of the new TN Standards!
