Native Americans in New England Curricular Project

This lesson sequence introduces students to the idea of Place. Its focus is on building the language related to the substantive topic of the peoples’ relationship with Place. We look at a region as a place in which people needed to adapt and invent ways to acquire their needs from the environment – food, water, shelter, and companionship. Students will develop their background knowledge of Native people of the Northeast region through video, photographs, and picture books that focus on the Wampanoag people.
