An exciting and engaging unit on Native American Myths for grades 6-8! This multi-disciplinary unit can be taught in either ELA or Social Studies. Students read and analyze a variety of NA myths through close reading, scaffolded note-taking, and the use of graphic organizers. Then they write their own myth or legend! #nativeamericanmyths #middleschoolela
Greek Mythology and Native American legends may seem like the two very different genres, with little to no similarities, but you'd be wrong! This project asks students to compare myths and legends from two very different cultures, finding both the similarities and differences. Through this common core linked project, students will read two myths, one about the Myth Icarus, and the other a Lenni Lenape legend called, "The Warrior and the Eagle."
This Native American Research Report unit has 19 pages. It is very organized! Allows students to use higher level thinking skills to locate important information and create a Native American research report highlighting their new knowledge. Everything you will need to organize the social studies unit is included. (TpT Resource)
