My students love our Native American studies unit in fourth grade, but it is very hard to find information and projects which address our standards. Here is a great activity to introduce your kids to the different tribes of North Carolina.
Attached you will find a 24 slide power point containing information on the three regions of North Carolina and the Native American tribes located within each region. The slides are color-coded, so that students can compare/contrast the different tribes' language, customs, government, traditions, and shelters.
As you go through the power point with your students, they color code their information packet (3 pages, 1 page for each region's tribes) in order to create a final project to lace together with yarn.
My students loved illustrating their final projects from images in the power point. We both learned a lot!
