Students will understand the historical significance of the Iroquois Confederacy by examining Iroquois efforts to secure peace with other Native American peoples through diplomatic relations. Students will demonstrate this understanding through completion of a concept map on diplomacy, a writing assignment, and a skit presented to the class.
Students will observe parts of a plant and seeds and how seeds grow into plants. Students will explore what seeds need to sprout and what plants need to grow. Students will examine and identify the differences between the Three Sisters seeds (corn, squash, and beans).
