Indigenous Peoples of North America Lesson Plans & Unit
This item is a comprehensive CURRICULAR UNIT (GOOGLE version included!) about the Indigenous Peoples who lived across North America that integrates reading and literacy. There are 8 complete lessons included in this bundle PLUS supplemental activities. This unit includes about 8 weeks of materials. Audios of the reading passages, quizzes, unit test, & modified test are included. This is perfect for students with read aloud accommodations. This resource can also be easily used for distance/digital learning because all components (except the simulation) are available in a digital format.
THIS UNIT CAN BE USED AS A STAND ALONE CURRICULUM. This can be used as homeschool curriculum, too.

Limited on copies or paper? Every component of this lesson is ready-to-go on GOOGLE, so you can easily assign to your students! The quizzes, unit test, and modified test are also available on GOOGLE Forms, and I include explicit directions on how to assign and tweak (if desired) for your students. The quizzes, unit test, & modified unit test are also self-grading!
This North American Indigenous Peoples Unit includes:
• 8 PowerPoint presentations that can be used to facilitate discussion or have students take notes
• 8 slotted notes pages so students can focus on recording the important information from the PowerPoint presentations (which includes carefully curated videos & links that will enrich the lessons) Editable slotted notes included!
• 8 informational reading passages about the Indigenous Peoples who lived across North America (There are TWO versions of the reading passage included. One is the “paper saver” version for when you have to limit your copies. The other is the “note-taking” version that has enough space for annotating and taking notes. This version also includes bolded headers for the different sections!)
• 32 activities (4 per lesson) (key terms, dates & events, geographical connections, political cartoon, literary works, and a literacy connection) per lesson. Three of the four activities PER lesson have two levels: a basic recall and an application of knowledge.
