Description

All the foundational information your students need to build their knowledge, interest, and skills upon. Concise information in point form with stunning images and thought-provoking questions. **

How people first came to the Americas is a mystery that archaeologists and scientists are continuing to investigate. One thing is certain; we do not yet have all the answers.

Two versions of this lesson!

The first is a Presentation - PowerPoint/Google Slides - for those teachers who know the material and want to guide their students through the material. This lesson takes me approximately 90 minutes to complete. There are five links to Youtube in the presentation. The videos total ~ 27 minutes. Youtube links are checked weekly and updated when necessary.

The second version consists of the information and images on worksheets that the students can read through at their own pace. This is best done if laptops or tablets are available for the class or for online learning. This version comes with more indepth questions that the students can work through at their own pace.
