Description

If you and your middle school students find a regular textbook boring and tedious, this is the product for you. I've designed a 3-week unit on Native American history so you can just attach and go! You will have absolutely everything you need to teach a complete, engaging, and meaningful study of this topic.

This unit focuses on the arrival of the first Americans, before European colonization.

This 3-week unit includes:

✅Planning Slideshow that is fully linked and editable; this can be given to students on their Google Classroom™ or digital learning platform and will keep your unit completely organized and accessible

✅An interactive lesson that describes the arrival of the first Americans and the regions and tribes who inhabited the Americas

✅A reading response that coordinates with the lesson; perfect for independent work or homework

✅Study guide and suggested study tools

✅ A quiz assessment (Google Forms™)- self-correcting

✅ Final project with grading rubric

Here is what I recommend for a smooth, organized unit:

⭐️Attach the slideshow to your digital learning platform. Assign each student their own copy. This helps you to easily manage a month-long unit.

⭐️Have students fill out the 'Student Thoughts" slide to get them engaged. They can start with this and add as the unit goes on. It is fun to play Native American music (easily found online).

⭐️Teach the actual lesson. It takes 1-2 days. Use your judgment on how to break this up in a way that works best for you and your students.

⭐️Students will work right in the slideshow on activities such as a "do now" activity, vocabulary, response to information, and a closing activity.

⭐️Use the 'Reading Responses" as homework or classwork. assignments. They are editable; you can add/change if you would like.

⭐️Using the study guide, have students work on the study tools to prepare for the quiz assessment.

⭐️At the end of the unit, assign the project. You can assign it in a "jigsaw fashion", giving each member of a small group a different tribe. It makes a great final assessment. All directions are included and editable to keep it manageable for you and your kids.

⭐️Have students share their projects in their small groups. There is a simple recording sheet to keep them focused on their teammates' presentations.

⭐️Use the rubric for easy grading of the project.

I would truly appreciate your feedback with a rating and review. It helps me when making future products.

Enjoy!
