Product Description
Native Americans

“Native Americans” is a Social Studies lesson that focuses on understanding the impact Westward Expansion had on the lives of the Native American tribes living on the Great Plains of the United States. The original informational text provides a summary of the tensions that developed between settlers and Native Americans, the effect that the loss of buffalo had on the Native Americans’ way of life, and the difficulties of living on reservations.
