Use this pack to learn more about the 8 different tribes that lived in the Ohio lands. There is one page of notes (in color and black & white) for each of the 8 tribes. I shrink the pages on the copier to 90% so they fit into our social studies notebooks.
Tribes Included: Wyandot, Ottawa, Seneca, Erie, Shawnee, Delaware, Miami, and Mingo
Activity #1 – Ohio’s Native Americans Map
Color the map, with a different color for each tribe. Cut the map out and add a title, compass and key. We glue the map into the center of our open notebook (or on a 12 x 18 sheet of paper) and then add brief notes about the tribes on the sides.
Activity #2 – Notes on Native American Tribes
Take more detailed notes on each of the 8 tribes. Write them on the sheets provided, fold the sheets in half and place each one into the labeled pocket. I copy the black & white set of notes for each table to use as they take their notes.
*I also enlarge the map to poster size and hang up the notes all around the map as a display while we are working on longer reports and projects.
Activity #3 - Poster Report Project
Working as a small group, students create a poster report about one of the 8 tribes using information and pictures.
