Lesson Plans

A Reading/Writing/Speaking Approach to the Ways in Which Geography Shapes How People Live – Part I:

This two-lesson study of American History (Pre-Columbian North America) examines the ways in which geography shapes how people live. Part I of the study places emphasis on reading and writing about the early Native American tribes and the ways in which their geography (climate, landforms, natural resources) played a role in how they lived (food, clothing, shelter, tools, art).

Part II of the study requires students to take the knowledge they learned in Part I and apply it to the creation of an oral multimedia project (with a visual arts piece) that depicts how they would have lived in a country of their choice based on that country's geography.
