3+ weeks of lessons plans included! This 24 page packet is perfect to add to a unit focusing on Native American legends. We use it for our fourth grade class on the essential question, “How the Earth & Sky are portrayed in fiction and nonfiction.” It allows students to see that legends incorporate real events with a person’s unusual life story with exaggerations and heroic actions.
Native American legend is full of reports of human like creatures coexisting with humans, some of whom may be referring to what we call bigfoot. See Chapter 6, Ghosts and Haunts of Tennessee: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/ghosts-and-haunts-of-tennessee-christopher-k-coleman/1029635600
