What are some interesting and engaging writing ideas that you have done while studying Native Americans? What are some good read alouds to go with this topic?

Thank you in advance!

Legends

When I taught 5th grade we wrote original Native Amer legends. There are several good picture books that can be used as examples but I like to use The Legend of the White Buffalo. I also have an anthology of legends in one book that I use because they are shorter so I can let the kids hear more variety.

To follow up, we studied totem poles and made our own to go along with our legends.

Since a lot of teachers present units on Native Americans to coincide with the thanksgiving holiday, I thought this would be a good time to revisit this thread. Here are some resources:

And some background info:
