STRAND ONE HISTORY
  • The term Mississippian refers to an urban
    civilization that flourished in eastern North
    America between the years c. 900 and 1400.
  • It was the last major prehistoric cultural
    development in North America
  • In the early 1400s, before the arrival of
    Europeans, the civilization mysteriously
    vanished.

5
ACTIVITIES
  • Strand One History
  • Students will go through a National Geographic
    and find pictures of artifacts. They will paste
    them on a poster board.
  • Students will create a time line of major events
    that took place in 1000 AD.
  • Students will create a family tree of their
    family. They will be expected to go back at
    least four generations but an incentive will be
    given to the furthest tree.
  • Students will write a story about how they would
    fight a battle if they were an Indian.
  • How did the tribes communicate? Come up with
    your own language and trade with a partner.

6
STRAND TWO PEOPLE IN SOCIETIES
  • The culture spread along the rivers to many parts
    of what is now the central and eastern United
    States.
  • The Mississippian culture was the only known
    pre-Columbian urban civilization to develop in
    the Americas north of what is now Mexico.
  • They made human sacrifices remain unclear, said
    it appears the deaths were part of a theatrical
    ritual, and the roles seem to be mythical,
    possibly a retelling of the story of creation.
  • Population centers were found in river basins, as
    their culture was sustained by the cultivation of
    crops. Towns were subordinate to other towns with
    more powerful Chief Priests thus confederacies
    were established

7
ACTIVITIES
  • Strand Two People in societies
  • We will have a tribe day. We will dress up as if
    we were Indians, discuss what they ate as well.
  • A guest speaker will come to the class. He will
    discuss the life of an Indian of that time.
  • What did they wear? You draw it on poster board!
  • If you were their medicine man, what would you
    give a guy with the flu?
  • Vegetation patterns were not like they are today.
    If you had to plant a field what would you put
    where?

8
STRAND THREE GEOGRAPHY
  • The Mississippians are also known as the Mound
    Builders, due to the enormous flat-topped temple
    mounds they constructed in the centers of their
    large, well-organized cities.
  • Among the most important centers of Mississippian
    culture were Cahokia, Illinois Moundville,
    Alabama and Ocmulgee, Georgia
  • The Mississippian Culture spanned from Wisconsin
    and Minnesota in the north, through Georgia to
    the south, and westward into the Great Plains

9
ACTIVITIES
  • Strand Three Geography
  • The students will build mounds with play doe.
    They will look similar to what the tribes would
    build.
  • The students will map their territory. It will
    be done on a worksheet.
  • Draw plants that are unique now but at that time
    they were very plentiful.
  • The students will watch a movie on how they
    traveled from place to place.
  • Pretend you are a weather man, what was the
    average weather in each season. Chart this on a
    poster.

10
STRAND FOUR ECONOMICS
  • The civilization engaged in trade with
    surrounding peoples as far away as the Rocky
    Mountains and the Atlantic coast.
  • It was based on intensive cultivation of corn,
    beans, squash, and other crops.
  • Craftwork was executed in copper, shell, stone,
    wood, and clay.
  • The Mississippian typically lived along the
    banks of large rivers for both food,
    transportation and protection.
  • These areas provided diversity in plant and
    animal life, fertile soil, and fresh water.

11
ACTIVITIES
  • Strand Four Economics
  • Students will create posters of different food
    that was grown and sold for other goods.
  • Students will use a barter system to trade with
    other classmates basic necessities. This is to
    show the importance of a plentiful crop.
  • Did they get along with their neighboring tribes?
    Find out some economic contributions and chart
    them.
  • If you lived in 1200 AD, what would you have if
    you were considered rich.
  • There were no manufacturers at this time. Were
    did they get their necessities from, label this
    on a poster

12
STRAND FIVE GOVERNMENT
  • It is now generally believed that a form of
    chiefdom government operated within the
    Mississippian period.
  • These chiefdoms, operating out of temple mound
    complexes, such as Moundville or Etowah,
    apparently controlled specific territories
    usually associated with a defined floodplain
    environment.
  • Chiefs were responsible for the redistribution of
    food between outlying communities and the major
    community.
  • In all probability, Mississippian chiefdoms
    controlled only small geographical areas and were
    in constant states of change because their power
    rested on fragile agricultural adaptations.

13
ACTIVITIES
  • Strand Five Government
  • We live in a democracy. Create a venn diagram
    that compares and contrast our government and
    theirs.
  • Women can vote in Americas, cold the always vote?
    What role did women play in society?
  • Were all men hunters? Create a chart that shows
    the various jobs of men in the tribe.
  • We know they were mound builders. Why did they
    create these large piles of earth? This will be
    done in groups and you will have to give a 4min
    speech.
  • Have a debate over who killed the deer. You and
    another tribe member both shot at the same time.
    You have to act out a debate that could have
    taken place during those time periods.

14
STRAND SIX CITIZENSHIP RIGHTS and
RESPONSIBILITIES
  • Each large town dominated a group of satellite
    villages.
  • Monks Mound was a large building that once stood
    atop the mound and is believed to have been the
    ceremonial home of the citys ruler or an elite
    clan.
  • A social hierarchy was present in the
    Mississippian culture.
  • Common people were simply buried while people of
    importance such as chiefs or gods were buried in
    great mounds.

15
ACTIVITIES
  • Strand Six Citizenship rights and
    responsibilities.
  • What were the jobs of children? Compare them to
    the jobs you do.
  • How did they get ready for winter, summer? Show
    on a poster the work that was needed.
  • You cannot consume alcohol until you are 21. It
    was not always like this. What role did alcohol
    play for the tribes? Show on poster board.
  • Many games were played. Re-create one for the
    class.
  • Dress up like a chief, tell characteristics of a
    chief.

16
STRAND SEVEN SOCIAL STUDIES SKILLS and METHODS
  • Students learn from various methods. It is our
    jobs as educators to make sure we reach every
    student.
  • Throughout this presentation we have hit every
    learner style and incorporated exciting
    activities for each and every student.

17
ACTIVITIES
  • Strand Seven Social studies skills and methods
  • Lecture- I tell the students facts.
  • Field trip- we all go to an Indian cite, they
    get hands on information.
  • Group presentations- the group will teach the
    class
  • Dress up day- we learn their culture and
    heritage through their dress.
  • Movie day- we learn through the movie
    representations and on cite viewing.

18
STRAND EIGHT SCIENCE TECHNOLOGY and SOCIETY
  • Technology should be incorporated in every
    classroom. It is our job as educators to teach
    the students the importance of technology in the
    every day world.
  • Our activities used different formats of
    technology while keeping it interesting for the
    students.

19
ACTIVITIES
  • Strand Eight Science technology and society
  • Students will create a Power Point over mound
    formations.
