I have searched and searched for some Native American supplemental materials for my classroom. So many of the resources available are Native Americans and Thanksgiving tied into one. Because Thanksgiving is not apart of my state's standards, I decided to create this unit: All Things Native Americans.
In this unit the following topics will be covered:
Cultural Elements of various Native American tribes
Factors of influence for Native American Settlement
Interactions between Native Americans and other groups of people
Conflict resolution strategies
Patterns of Native American Settlement
Adaptations to environments to meet human needs (including food, shelter, and clothing)
Environment successes and challenges
Early North American settlements in specific regions of the U.S.
Changes in technology, education, communication, and transportation over time.
*Please note: several different tribes throughout the
U.S. can be covered in this unit.
I hope you find this PRINTER FRIENDLY resource helpful in your classroom as you study Native Americans!
