Native Americans – The First Americans – A Fourth Grade SMARTBoard Introduction is a SMARTBoard 4th grade level instructional presentation
It includes: a SMARTBoard presentation of the text along with two interactive slides that are also available in PDF format to print and issue as classwork, homework, or attach/incorporate into an interactive notebook (after matching definitions with pictures, definitions may be secured to interactive notebook and edge of matching picture can be secured on top of it so it may be flipped up for study purposes). Students can also complete the activities during the presentation as reinforcement for the presentation.
The presentation includes:
• Introduction to light terminology (prehistory, artifact, resource, hunter-gatherer, and technology).
• The Mississipians and Cahokia
• Eastern Woodland Indians, Iroquois, and longhouses
• Hiawatha and the Iroquois League
• Great Plains
• How buffalo were utilized
• The Comanche, teepees, and the Plains Sign Language
• Southwest and Ancestral Pueblo
• The West, Ozette, and Makah
• The Tlingit, Nez Perce, and Shoshone
The last 2 slides are white-background slides used for the printables. The printables are already in PDF form in the package. The white-background pages are not included in the total pages. I include them in case you would like to change any of the data and recreate the printables.
The interactive/review slides and printables:
• Activity one has students identifying terminology through a matching activity. Terms included are Great Basin, teepee, Great Plains, prehistory, Southwest, resource, Plains sign language, artifact, Iroquois League, West, Eastern Woodlands, buffalo, Tlingit, Cahokia, and hunter-gatherer.
• Activity two has students identifying the regional locations on a map (West, Great Basin, Southwest, Great Plains, and Eastern Woodlands) and the tribes in those regions (Tlingit, Nez Perce, Shoshone, Ancestral Pueblo, Makah, Comanche, Iroquois, and Mississippians).
