North America before European contact was a diverse and innovative place. Indigenous Peoples of the Americas created technologies unique to their environment and formed complex trading networks across the continent.

Two versions of this lesson!
The first is a PowerPoint for those teachers who know the topic and want to guide their students through the material. This lesson takes me approximately 60 minutes to complete. There are handouts for note taking along with reflection questions included with this presentation.
The second version consists of the information and images on worksheets that the students can read through at their own pace. This is best done if laptops or tablets are available for the class or for online learning. This version comes with more indepth questions that the students can work through at their own pace.
