Tribes of the West
In this set of activities, students learn about the Native Americans the pioneers would have encountered on their travels West. The resource includes a detailed map from the past, sign language the Plains tribes used, and a parfleche pattern. See Full Product Description.
These engaging pages illustrate important parts of Native American life that are often missed. Resources include a detailed map outlining where various tribes and groups once lived across North America, sign language visuals and reading passage on Plains tribes' sign language, and a pattern to make a parfleche.
Take an opportunity to compare the map included of North America's past with present-day maps. Project onto an interactive whiteboard, and have students discuss what they notice.
