Students read about the massacre at Wounded Knee and answer 11 questions of varying levels of difficulty. They then complete a creative task where they create a museum exhibit for the events and people of Wounded Knee. The answers are included where appropriate and this would be great for a sub!
Sample questions include:
--Explain the connection between Big Foot, Wovoka, and the Ghost Dance.
--Describe the mood of the conversation between Forsyth and Big Foot.
--Why did Wells think the medicine man was making mischief?
--How is it determined as to what sort of event is a battle, massacre, or fight?
--Write at least 3 sentences on what you think the Sioux take on these events would have been.
