In this differentiated lesson, students compare various aspects of the U.S. government with the Iroquois Confederacy. Using this single handout, students will
1. analyze an illustration
2. answer questions based on primary source text
3. watch a short video (I only play the first five minutes of the video, but if you have more time, the entire 20 minute video is very informative.)
An answer key for the lesson is included as well.
I have also used this lesson in conjunction with Constitution Day. I usually am teaching the Iroquois at that time and it seems like a natural connection in discussing the similarities and differences in relation to our own government today!
