1. Pick a Native American tribe that interests you. Be sure you can find quite a bit of information about this tribe. 2. Research your tribe. Include information about at least eight of the following subjects. A. type of shelter B. type of clothing C. surrounding environment D. transportation E. food F. art and music - Photos of art and examples of music, if available, would be very interesting to use in your oral report. G. role of men and women H. raising of children I. language/communication J. other interesting facts and/or artifacts 3. Create a 3-D village scene depicting the life of your tribe. See Creating a Visual Display page for details. Use the information from your research to make your scene as true to life as possible. The scene should be about the size of your desk top. 4. Note: You do not have to have people in your display. Information can be displayed without the use of figures. If you do use figures, they should be authentic. Many of the plastic Native American figures you find today only represent the Plains' tribes. If you do wish to use figures, craft stores sometimes have a nice selection. 5. Be able to talk about your tribe and village scene with guests. We will invite parents and other classes to see our scenes and hear summaries of our reports. This will count as an oral report and be a part of your Social Studies grade. To be ready, practice giving your presentation to members of your family.
6. Your scene and oral report are due on Wednesday, November 8. 2017
