Social Studies

Begin Unit 2: Native Peoples of Early America

Big Idea for Unit 2: Culture influences the way people live.


Native Americans thrived in North America long before Europeans arrived. Each group developed unique ways of life based on the place and time in which they lived. In this unit, we will learn about the lives and cultures of Native Americans in different geographic regions of North America. We will think about how each culture was influenced by the environment.
