Native Americans 3rd grade

I am starting a unit on Native Americans. Unfortunately we have nothing in place/curriculum to use when teaching this. We do however have several books on the different regions that I plan on using. I am in charge of covering the Southwest, Pacific Northwest, Plains and the Woodlands. Any ideas, websites, etc would be sooooooo appreciated. I promise to return the favor. I have been teaching for 7 years and have lots of ideas, so ask and I will do my best to send great things your way! Thanks so much in advance!!!

I have my kids get into groups and become experts on one NA group. They research it, take notes (writing main ideas and supporting details), we then make artifacts related to that tribe, create a poster for it and then present it to other students and family as a Native American Museum. It has gone over well with both students and parents.
