Native American Government
: How did it Influence the US Constitution? Mystery!
In this highly-engaging activity, students investigate how the Iroquois Confederacy (Mohawk, Cayuga, Onondaga, Oneida, Seneca and Tuscarora) influenced the Founding Fathers and the United States Constitution!
Students examine a variety of primary sources as they come to understand how the United States framework for government is (in part) due to the government established under the "Great Law of Peace" that governed over the Iroquois Confederacy.
Students compile their learning in a brief essay at the conclusion of the activity! A key is included!
This resource includes a paper in-class version and a 1:1 Google compatible version to be used in conjunction with Google Classroom. Just follow the included instructions for how to access the Google version, then share the resource through Google or assign via Google Classroom. This will allow students to type directly into the document!
