The Iroquois

This The Iroquois lesson plan also includes:

During the early 1500s, parts of modern-day New York were inhabited by Eastern Woodland Native Americans. To learn about the daily life, value, and traditions of these tribes, fourth graders research the Iroquois.  Groups select projects from a differentiated menu to present the results of their research.

Classroom Considerations
  • Requires extra prep time to create the slideshow and to locate leveled text for each group
  • Includes a rubric for each project
  • Provides neither examples of leveled text for the three groups nor a slideshow
