INSTRUCTIONS FOR NATIVE AMERICANS PROJECT- MRS. FORTUNES 2nd & 3rd CLASSES

People lived in the United States long before the arrival of Christopher Columbus and the Europeans. These people and cultures are called Native Americans. Native Americans were often grouped into tribes or nations. These groupings were generally based on peoples that shared the same culture, language, religion, customs, and politics. There are over 1000 Native American Tribes in the United States.

Complete a project on the Native Americans. The topics you must include are; Clothing, Homes, Art, Life as a child, Religion and two others of your choice. Research the topics and write them in YOUR OWN WORDS. Each topic must have three facts and include some pictures that you draw yourself. You must be able to present this to the class when you get back to school. Enjoy!

Here is a website that might help: www.ducksters.com (https://www.ducksters.com/history/native_americans.php). There is a quiz at the end of each topic to test yourself. Remember be internet safe and search with your parents’ permission and supervision.
