Social Studies Notes

Our second unit of study will entail mesoamerica and early civilizations in North America.  We will discuss the movement of Natives into North America and then break the regional tribes into sections to study the culture, resources and living conditions of that region.  We will study the Southwest Tribes, the Great Plains Tribes, the Pacific Northwest/Alaskan Tribes, The Northeastern Woodlands, and the Aztecs of Mexico.  We will also discuss the Mayan and Olmec tribes of the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico.
