Here is an interactive slideshow introducing each of the 8 Native American Cultural Regions originally created for an 8th Grade History class. It is lighthearted but informative, with questions posed and then answered with bountiful illustrations and some humor (bearing in mind the utter respect due to this topic--just enough humor for student arousal and attention to an eminently important matter) on the next slide. By the end of the slideshow and careful and informed teacher guidance, students have an organized method for learning the characteristics of all cultural zones. It is meant as a pictorial and engaging presentation for the teacher to add on details and complexity befitting the original inhabitants of the US. Good luck with your lesson!
