This Native American product is a great supplement to a study of the groups in the Southwest 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 two reading passages about the Pueblo and Navajo, students complete graphic organizers that help them compare and contrast the two groups and form generalizations about Native American life in the Southwest.
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.
