When students are studying the Native American Cultural Regions, it's important for them to understand how the environment impacted the traditions and way of life for the people who lived there. In this activity students will create a spider map that illustrates what they have learned about the Indigenous Peoples of the Caribbean Region. Their maps will include the name(s) of the Indigenous peoples, describe the environment of the Caribbean with physical features and climate, list the natural resources available and how these were used as food and to create tools, clothing, and homes. They may also describe any other cultural traditions or interesting information.
