Organize your American Indians of Texas unit with a Tribes of Texas Lap Book. This lap book is designed to help students summarize content for the four American Indian Culture Groups of Texas. In addition to the lap book template, you will also receive content readings and image analysis handouts for every tribe in Texas.
You can construct the lap book at the beginning of the unit and have the students complete each section as they learn the content –or- create it at the end as a review for an exam.
With this resource, you will receive:
–Word Wall Terms to pre-teach key vocabulary
–a template for American Indians in Texas. Topic contents cover: Plains Cultures, Southeast Cultures, Gulf Coast Cultures, and Puebloan Cultures.
– Content readings and images on the major American Indian Tribes in Texas. These tribes include: Karankawa, Coahuiltecan, Caddo, Tonkawa, Tigua, Jumano, Apache, Kiowa, Comanche and Wichita.
–Stop and Discuss Questions on each reading and Image Analysis Questions for each tribe.
–Maps for your students to annotate with symbols and summaries with the information from the content handouts.
⭐Please download the preview to see what the lap book will look like when complete. ⭐
❓How much time will it take to make the lap book?
✥That really depends on you and your kids. If you model with your students, you can create it in about 15-20 minutes. The remaining portion of the lesson will be based on your students reading and taking notes from the content handouts.
*Please note, the content pages are the same as in the Annotated Map activity – you do not need to purchase them both.
