Students will be researching the Native American tribe of their choice from the following list:

Caddo, Jumano, Commanche, and Karankawa.

They will gather facts about the clothing, culture, food, and government of the specific tribe.

In addition, students will apply their knowledge of the Texas regions to create an advertisement for the

regionwhere their selected tribe resided. The culminating product will be a report, an advertisement

(brochure, commercial, etc…), and a figure to represent all that they have learned about Texas regions

and the Native Americans who were the earliest Texans. We will complete the projects during the

week of October 21st and presenting them the week of October 28th.
