“In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue….” For many people, the history of America begins with the “discovery” and exploration of our continent – the New World – by a succession of Europeans such as: Christopher Columbus, Ponce de Leon, and Jacques Cartier. In reality man had reached the New World (the Americas) many years before this! Before Columbus landed on our shores there was culture here, religion, and prosperity. The purpose of this assignment is to learn all you can about these first Americans.

Your task will be to create a presentation about the Native American tribe that you have been assigned.

Here is what you will need to include in your presentation:
  • a map showing where the tribe lived
  • what kind of homes they built (be sure to include an image)
  • list 2-5 resources they used to survive
  • share 3 interesting facts you discovered about your tribe
Before we begin, you will need to create two folders:
  • In your documents folder on the computer, create a new folder called "Native American Research."
  • In your Google Drive, create a new folder called "Native American Research."
    • In this folder, create a Google Doc called "Native American Notes."
