What educators are saying

Great addition to my lessons for extension activity or as a project. Love that you created in different colors. Thanks for sharing this awesome product.
My students really enjoyed the activities from this resource. They loved the canoe project. I printed it on cardstock so they would have more stability and last longer.


A one-page overview on Native American Birchbark Canoes
A list of 10 vocabulary words and definitions used in the overview (includes: pliable, bison, vessel, dugout, settlement, waterway and more)
A comprehension test (with answers)
A Crossword Puzzle that utilizes the vocabulary words
A Word Search Puzzle that utilizes the vocabulary words

The 3-Dimensional Canoe Craft includes:
3 different canoe templates
Easy-to-copy pictographs

Both the mini-lesson and craft are flexible enough to allow you to adjust the difficulty level to the abilities of your students. Great mini-lesson and craft to use with various themes such as Thanksgiving, Pilgrims, Native Americans, Westward Expansion, boats.
