Local Native American history is a fairly common unit in grades 2-4. Some fellow teachers in different states (CT., IL., and southern CA.) thought it would be exciting for our students to share their learning with other classes around the country. One of the primary objectives would be to compare how the natural resources and climate of an area influenced local Native American lifestyle (food, clothing, and housing, etc.).
The collaboration will be done through a wiki
and we are hoping to do it during late Nov/Dec.
If you cover Native Americans and are interested in participating or if you have any questions, please leave a comment. Thanks!
