Title: Native Americans: How Their Environment Affected Their Culture
Description: In this lesson, students will research one Native American group from each of the six main biomes in North America.

Students will discover the climate, landforms, water, and other natural resources available within each region and how they were used by the natives living there. Students will explore the relationships between the cultures found within each region and its resources.  This unit was created as part of the ALEX Interdisciplinary Resource Development Summit.
