  • Continue researching your tribe with resources in the classroom library. Pay close attention to the rubric for library research. On a separate piece of paper, cite your work by writing down, the author, the title of the book, the publisher, and the copyright date in this form: Last name, First Name. Title. Publisher. City, State abbreviation, date.rubric
  • Slide 7
  • Now is the time to put it all your pieces together and create your project: the class newspaper. Gather your notes all together and get with your group to compare your notes. Discuss the important aspects of your Florida tribe. Decide as a group what information should be in your article, advertisements, comic strips, and pictures and maps. As a class you will need to decide on a name for your paper, a design for the layout, and what will be the feature story. Take a look at some examples of newspapers to get some ideas. Have several sheets of newsprint handy, because you will want to make a "rough" copy before making your final copy.
  • Slide 8
  • After the final copy of the newspaper is made, you will present your part of the project to the class. Remember that not everyone learned about your Florida Native American tribe, so you will need to explain to the class your process, how you chose your information and why you chose certain facts, and the important information on your tribe that you included.

Look at the group evaluation form, fill out, and turn in to your teacher.
