Following a detailed Native American Writing Blueprint, each student wrote a five paragraph essay, with the student becoming the voice of a landform, animal, plant, or power sharing the environment with the tribe. By using sensory language, the environment was pictured, activities of the men, women, and children described, impact of the explorers felt, state of the tribe today given, and a prediction made about the future of the Native American tribe. Students created PowerPoint presentations of their writings, complete with illustrations and exchanged with ePals.
