Come explore the frontier of North America and discover the many cultures of the Native Americans. You will encounter the tribes of the Great Basin Region, the Northern and Southern Plateau, the Plains and the Pacific Northwest. In addition, experience the Ghost Dance, be a part of the Indian Wars, and witness the settling of the United States.
The students will have a packet which we will complete in class. The information in this packet can be used as a study guide for the test at the end of the unit.
Homework for this unit: Students should make flashcards for all highlighted information as as we complete a chapter and study these cards a few minutes each day.
All quizzes and tests will be posted on the 5th grade calendar outside the classrooms, on the board in my social studies classroom, on my web page calendar, and on the 5th grade calendar. All students are also asked to write the quizzes and tests in their assignment books.
