Lesson Plan

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

This two-lesson study of American History (Pre-Columbian North America) examines the ways in which geography shapes how people live. Part one 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 two of the study requires students to take the knowledge they learned in Part one 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.
