Native American Culture in the News

What is culture? "Culture" is a term that describes the entire way of life shared by a group of people. -National Geographic You get to learn something important about a Native American culture by reading a news article of your choice! 1- Please read at least one of the Newsela articles in the template, and circle your choice(s). Use the link on the article picture to go to any article. 2- On page 2, share your learning about the culture you read about. Note- Feel free to use drawing tools in ways that connect to your learning about the culture. Hint- I recommend that you read the article at the level that is most comfortable for you and perhaps even read it again at another level!

Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

Hello Seesaw Colleagues! Newsela is a rich resource for news articles, which can be read at different reading levels. I encourage students to read articles at a comfortable level and then at other levels as well (both ones they think are easier or harder). There are many articles related to Native American culture. I chose ones that are fairly recent, that I thought my students would find personally interesting, and that seemed to connect with a clear aspect of traditional "culture" like art, values, food, nature, etc. But you may find choices that are better for your students and perhaps focused on a different culture. Enjoy, Kristin
