9/4 Diverse and Complex Native Societies

Today we investigated Key Concept 1.1: Natives developed distinct/complex societies by adapting/transforming their environments.

Students were assigned a Native group to become experts on then began jigsawing with other students to gather information on all the groups.  Things to note: name of group, environment/geography, culture/society, sources/methods of food, housing, memorable fact.

These notes will be turned in at the end of the unit!
