For this chapter, we looked at Native American tribes around the United States. Students did a research project. Using books from the library, they looked at one tribe apiece, then searched for information. They had to find out where their tribe lived, what the environment there was like, how that tribe dealt with basic needs of food and shelter, and some interesting facts about that particular tribe.
Special thanks to the Lawrence Public Library - they let me check out 41 books on Native American tribes for my students to us. Most books I'd ever checked out at one time.
