This Native American of the Eastern Woodlands product is a great supplement to a study of the Native groups in the northeast and southeast region of North America. It would also work well if you are dividing a class into small groups for work in centers.
After completing the reading passages about the Eastern Woodlands Indians, students complete graphic organizers that help them identify key topics and compare life with the Iroquois and Creek tribes.
There are optional enrichment activity pages that give students the opportunity to explore one aspect of a group in more depth.
**NEW** Digital Interactive Google Slide Notebook Pages for Google Drive. The product has a supplemental Google Slide resource for additional student practice. The digital notebook could be used in place of the paper reading passages and notes pages.
