California Native American Project  

California Native American Project                 Due Date: Friday, January 11, 2019


 

Handmade Creation/Demonstration and Notes

You will research and present on a California Tribe.  Using your notes, you are to create a handmade creation/demonstration project.   You will present your handmade creation/demonstration to the class and turn in your notes to Ms. Santin.

 

Notes:

Using the provided worksheet, please take notes on your tribe.  You must use, at least, two different resources. You may use textbooks, the Internet, encyclopedias, museums, pamphlets/brochures, or other resources to help you.  These notes are needed to help you create your handmade creation/demonstration. The notes need to be in your own words and not copied or pasted from the Internet. Notes need to be neatly written or typed.  Please check your spelling, grammar, punctuation, etc. Please provide a bibliography, using the format below. The note sheet needs to be turned in for checking by Wednesday, December 19th. Ms. Santin will then return the note sheet to you.

 

Handmade Creation/Demonstration:

Please make a creation/demonstration representing your tribe.  Creations could include: a diorama, Native Californian doll, map of your tribe’s location, a model of an artifact, a painting or mural, a small scale model of a typical house or village, a demonstration/explanation of pottery/basket making, a PowerPoint or Google Slides presentation or a teacher-approved idea.  The possibilities are endless! Please make sure that you put time and effort into your creation/demonstration. Your creation/demonstration needs to have color (if needed), be neat, creative, well-made and show that you have spent time planning and creating. Your creation also needs to be accurate, according to where your tribe lived, the resources it actually used, etc. Adults are able to assist but not do the project themselves, please.
