Lesson Plan

"Tell Me a Story"                    Native People: 4-6 Grade

Students writing a story


Students will enjoy listening to a tale passed down by the Seminoles about how the world came to exist. Students will discuss why people told stories both historically and today. Then they can develop their own stories about things they observe in the world around them.


Our "Native Peoples" unit contains two lesson plans, each taking an hour to complete, and targeted mainly at 4th-6th grade students. A class needn't complete every lesson in the unit, though some lessons do refer to one another and are better done in sequence. Each lesson comes with its own set of objectives and resources as well as suggestions for related activities.
