I created this as a close reading exercise for morning work to compliment our unit on Native Americans. I wanted to spotlight some of the Native Americans that aren't as well-known. (Lexile levels range from 650 to 1050.)
This Unit has a passages focusing on Great Leaders:
-Datsolalee (basket weaving)
-Atsidi Sani (silversmith)
-Crescencio Martinez (Pueblo painter)
-The Florida Boys (drawings and painting)
Other Great Achievers:
-Susan La Flesche (first female Native American doctor)
-Francis La Flesche (writer and activist)
-Ishi (the lone remaining survivor of the Yahi Tribe of northern California)
I've included a generic graphic organizer for the students to be able to cite two key details and a summary of each person.
