Hi Fellow Teachers!
Thank you for viewing this product. This in-class project is a perfect way to wrap up a Native American Unit.
Students are placed into groups made up of 3-4 students. Using what they know from the Native American study done in class, students are asked to create a NEW Native American tribe. The students will have to synthesize prior information and apply it to their new tribe.
The students are asked to create a tribe book focusing on eight main features (village, food, trading, location, etc.). On presentation day, students will present their tribe book, as well as showcase their Native American clothing, pottery, and tool samples.
*The student directions are rather wordy, but after going over them with students, they are able to work quite independently with their group.
This cooperative project lasts roughly 2 weeks between the construction of the book, and the presentation days.
Student instructions and rubrics are included. A self/team evaluation is present in this pack. I also included a sample book made this year by my students.
Please contact me if you should have any questions :)
