FC: The Plains and Woodlands Indians
1: Welcome to my Mixbook technology curriculum project! The following pages are examples of work students might create and publish following the directions of my Plains and Woodlands Indians lesson plan found at the end of this Mixbook. Technology is a powerful motivator for students. They can create projects that are aesthetically pleasing and that can be published to share with other students, family, and friends. In addition to be viewed on the web, a Mixbook can be printed out as a hard copy book, that can be housed on the classroom, presented to the school library, or purchased by parents and guardians as a keepsake of their child's work.
