Activity Overview

In this activity students will break down what they have learned about the different environments in North America in a storyboard. They will include the names of the Native American Cultural Regions and briefly describe the environment including physical features and climate. This is a great way to open or end a unit on Native Americans, as it can both introduce the regions and reinforce what students have learned. It also serves as a good reference point for students to ensure they don't get confused!
