Culturally Sensitive Native American Units

I have always been fascinated by Native American Culture. I've actually considered looking into teaching on a reservation someday.

I have to say that I am just appalled by some of the units and activities people buy, sell and complete this time of year.  We have to be more sensitive in what we choose to use with our students.

My favorite go-to is literature. Here are some books I recommend:

Higher level activities: Compare the different kinds of homes the various tribes built. Design your own home using materials from nature.

Storytelling-how has it changed over time

Patterns-in Native American music and art

New uses for mud.
