This mini lesson on the early inhabitants of Texas is a short power point, graphic organizer, and stations/centers activity. The power point has discussion questions and introduces the Caddo, Karankawa, Coahuiltecan, and Atakapa. The graphic organizer accompanies the power point and includes 4 questions.
The stations (or centers) activity introduces the Plains and Puebloan tribes, specifically the Jornada, Tiguia, Jumano, Tonkawa, Apache, Comanche, and Kiowa. There are 3 brief readings on those tribes and 22 questions for students to answer. To go with those 3 stations there are 7 images which I use as a 4th station, and the students organize (or sort) the images according to what they read.
Lastly, there is a blank map and the students create a key with symbols to represent each tribe they learned about and label the areas where the tribes were located.
The zip file includes the power point in powerpoint, pdf, and keynote format for your convenience, a teacher information page, and an answer key where appropriate.
