Fitting “more” in is not always easy these days – we’re doing a lot of cross curricular work at my school. This packet is a research project that is social studies in content and covers both written and oral standards in language arts. Prewrite, organization, and
final expectations are included!
Read the teacher notes: Although I started this project as factual and making connections between Native Americans and Explorers - and their interactions - my past few classes have taken their work a step further and made connections in regards to what is happening in the world today and looking at bias and stereotype. I have also included a list of minilessons I teach during this unit, so the project and process can be as long or short as you need for it to be.
I have specific lists and suggestions for tribes and explorers that influenced Indiana that can be included, but this product is written for a general audience. (Feel free to contact me if you want Indiana information.)
