This product includes lesson plans/instructions for a Native American diorama project. The project requires students to research location, food, shelter and clothing for a specific tribe and create a 3D representation of that tribe's environment might look like. Students are asked to be creative and use everyday materials they can find at school or home.
In addition, students are asked to compare their tribe to another tribe in an essay. Both assignments have corresponding rubrics and instructions.
This is a great way to begin introducing reference materials and research skills.
