Product Description
Through a deep dive into three different Native American tribes, students will explore how tribes in different parts of the United States relied on different types of natural resources for survival and how those natural resources ultimately shaped the values and rituals of the tribes. A key goal of the unit, in connection with other units in the sequence, is to help students understand different cultures more deeply and appreciate the role the environment plays in relation to characteristics of certain cultures. It is also our hope that students will begin to question the fairness of what happened to the Native Americans hundreds of years ago and how those events have had a long-lasting impact on the way Native Americans live and are treated today.

This unit uses three texts from the If You Lived series as mentor texts. The texts were chosen because of their simple and easy-to-follow text structure that mimics the structure students are learning to use as writers.

The first five lessons in this unit are provided in this download. Lessons 6-19 are available for free on our website www.matchfishtank.org.
