This is a pair-share activity. Students are divided in pairs for peer coaching. There are two parts to this lesson. During the first part, students color and label the Oceans and continents. The students trace the probable migratory routes of Native Americans from Asia to the East Coast. This is modelled by the teacher on chart paper. During the second part of the lesson, students locate the following tribes on the East Coast (Seminole,, seneca, Oneida, Mohawk, Narraganset, Massachuset, Micmac) and highlight the Powhatan, Pequot and Iroquois.
The teacher also models this on chart paper.
