In this map-making activity, students will become "cartographers" as they read excerpts from the Treaty of Greenville and draw, using the language of the treaty and following the mentioned geographic features, what land the young United States received and what remained under the control of the native tribes.
This activity is best used after students have learned about the Battle of Fallen timbers or once the Northwest Ordinance has been introduced.
Because of the challenging nature of this assignment, there are 3 modified versions to differentiate among your student populations. The documents vary between degree of difficulty.
The first document in the PDF is the most challenging. It offers the treaty in its original quality and offers the least help on the included map. The second is the "middle of the road" document - it offers slight modifications to the document (certain words changed, reworded). The last document is best for your struggling students - it has them label the map with less features, provides the treaty with much simplified language, and has a map that is much simpler than other versions.
This resource includes a paper in-class version and a 1:1 Google compatible version to be used in conjunction with Google Classroom. Just follow the included instructions for how to access the Google version, then share the resource through Google or assign via Google Classroom. This will allow students to type directly into document!
