SS4H1-Historical Understandings

Today we are writing standards in our notes about Paleo-Indians. Remember from vocabulary that Paleo means old. These were the first Native Americans. You can see on our notes that scientists had 2 theories on how people came over.

I also published the maps rubric and spelling list on our upcoming assignments page. We will be doing several sections in which the class develops a smartboard map. I'll try to post them this week.

Don't forget Harry Wong's sage advice, "people who work and put in effort always achieve more than those who do not!"

The standards we are working on for this chapter are:

SS4H1-The student will describe how early Native American cultures developed in North America.

a. Locate where the American Indians settled with emphasis on Arctic (Inuit), Northwest (Kwakiutl), Plateau (Nez Perce), Southwest (Hopi), Plains (Pawnee), and Southeastern (Seminole).

b. Describe how the American Indians used their environment to obtain food, clothing, and shelter.
