Product Description
Students read Native American Myths and connect their reading to a nonfiction excerpt from the book, No Impact Man by Colin Beavan. After reading, the lesson culminates with a writing assignment from a menu of activities. By giving students choices, teachers are able to differentiate their instruction and meet the needs of diverse students.

To begin, students complete an anticipation guide with statements about nature and the environment. A handout with pre-reading strategies prepares them for a myth reading jigsaw activity. Students complete readings of a selection of six Native American Myths by James Mooney including “How the World Was Made,” “The Origin of Strawberries,” “The Snake Boy,” and others.

This lesson incorporates all strands of the Common Core English Language Arts (ELA) Anchor Standards. The readings engage your students with topics about the environment and consumerism, and could make an excellent STEM connection.

This 30 page resource includes the following:
-explicit lesson plan with identified ELA Common Core Anchor Standards,

-informational reading,
