This project will be a way for your child to show self-motivation, creativity, and knowledge of an American Indian Tribe. There will be several requirements for the project, but much will be open to your child’s interpretation. I want the students to use his/her talents and interest as a mode for delivery of the information about the chosen tribe. For example, if your child is an amazing artist, they may choose to paint a picture incorporating the requirements into the paintings. If your child loves technology, they may choose to create a power point presentation or a video clip. If your child loves to act or dress up, they may choose to create a short skit incorporating the requirements. Another idea would be for you child to create a comic strip or a “graphic novel” about the particular tribe. I will be giving children examples of what I am expecting and some different ideas over the coming weeks. The due date for this project is 10/16/17, Monday.
*Choose a specific American Indian Tribe
*Specify and describe or show the region that this tribe inhabited. (southwest, northeast, plains, artic, etc. )

*Make sure you know the information you are presenting to the class. (become an EXPERT on your tribe!)
Important: This project should be the student’s’ independent work. This, however, does not mean messy, unorganized, or inaccurate work should be allowed. Use this opportunity to show your child these things can be accomplishes, then let him/her revise or edit the work until it is something your child will be proud of.
