45 minutes each
Co-operative Learning and Journal writing
Questioning blocks whose sides have prompts such as
Why? Where? When? What?Who?How?
Graphic Organizer: Copy of Venn Diagram for each student
Using the printed information about Native Americans, students will focus on the Pequot, Iroquois, Powhatan women and work with Question Blocks in co-operative learning groups of 4. Each student will toss two blocks at a time and follow the prompts to discuss with members of the group and record answers in their journals individually.
They will use the organizer to compare and contrast a Native American Woman of the East Coast with a woman of today –clothes, work, culture.
