Students will enjoy making these subway art pieces to show what they know about North American Indian groups! This enhanced hands-on sorting activity provides students the opportunity to create an attractive, personalized visual aid that organizes information about North American Indian groups.
Each of the four subway art collages is based on a North American Indian group (Eastern Woodlands, Plains, Southwest, and Northwest Coast). Using the included master list of terms and graphic organizer, students will sort terms related to tribes or confederations; homes; geography & climate; and culture according to the North American Indian groups that represent them. Then, they will color and cut specially designed cut-outs for each term and arrange them into a subway art piece for each North American Indian group.
The file includes the following resources:
-Suggested uses and instructions
-North American Indian Subway Art master list of terms (80 terms)
-North American Indian Subway Art graphic organizer
-80 cut-out terms
-North American Indian Subway Art Key
-Sample collage image
VERSATILE USES! This activity could be used either as an anticipatory set prior to beginning a unit on Native Americans in North America during which students could activate prior knowledge or as a review activity in which students could demonstrate what they have learned during the unit. This activity could be completed individually or in a group setting with slight adaptation.
