This is a project designed to be completed in groups. I did this project with my 5th graders in alignment with their Early People of the Americas unit. This was a transition for them into doing research projects. Each group is given a different tribe to research. Each student in the group is assigned a letter to complete those questions independently, and then the students work together to complete the HOT critical thinking questions. I then had my students present their findings to the class. This project took about 3 class periods, with 2 days of presentations to follow that. Included in this is the packet of questions for each group, We used ducksters.com for the tribal readings to accompany these questions.
