Lesson Topic: California Indian Groups


1. Introduction: (Identify Grade Level K12 Academic Content Standard(s), rationale, focus learner, create bridges
from past learning, behavior expectations)
California State Standards History-Social Sciences:
4.2.1- Discuss the major nations of California Indians,

including their geographic distribution, economic

activities, legends, and religious beliefs; and describe
how they depended on, adapted to, and modified the
physical environment by cultivation of land and use of
sea resources.

-In order to meet the California State Standards for

History-Social Sciences, students will watch a short
video on the four major Indian tribes and completing
activities that follow the video segment.

2. Learner Outcome(s)/Objective(s): (What will students learn from this lesson? How will you measure mastery of the

Chumash, Cahuilla, Miwok, and Hupa Indians.
-Students will meet the California State Standards for
History-Social Sciences 4.2.1 by learning about the
four major Indian tribes in California.
3. Pre-assessment Activity: (Determine students abilities to achieve the learner outcome and prescribe instruction
accordingly. Consider: linguistic background, academic language abilities, content knowledge, cultural and health
considerations, interests and aspirations, physical development, social development, emotional development. )
Students will be asked about what they already know about

6. Learning Activities: Explicit Teacher Instruction - (Explain, model, demonstrate, check for understanding)
Learning Activities:
Following the pre-assessment activity, the teacher will
inform the students that they will be watching an
introduction video to our new lesson on California Indians.
The teacher will explain a new note-taking technique to the
students called watch-draw-share. They will first watch the
video once through without any distractions, and they will be
told to focus on the four Indian groups. Next they will be
asked to take out their Social Studies notebooks, and turn to
the next blank page. Now they will watch the video one more
time, while the teacher stops after main points for the
students to sketch down drawing, and words about the main

will help students learn about the culture and ways
of life of the Chumash, Cahuilla, Miwok, and Hupa
Indians, while learning excellent note-taking skills.
-By showing the video to the students more than
one time allows for all students a second chance to
grab all of the details needed in order to complete
their assignments.
-The watch-draw-share technique shows students
how to draw out main details from a whole video.

At the end of the video, the students will have time to finish
up their sketches, and notes. The teacher will call on students
to share their notes on the video. The teacher will call on the
students at random by drawing sticks.

7. Learning Activities: Guided Practice/ Collaborative Practice (Check for understanding and provide feedback and

they may have missed when taking down their own

8. Independent Practice: (Provide practice that supports the learning outcome. Note: Independent activities are
assigned assuming that students understand the concept well enough to work on their own.)
Independent Practice:
The students will be given handout packets that include a
large amount of useful information on each of the four Indian
tribes that they students are learning about during this unit of
study. They will be asked to color the backside page of each
tribe, and keep the packet in their desk. Explain to the
students that they will be using this packet tomorrow, when
we will be filling in a chart about specific details on each of
the four California Indian tribes. Remind the students to raise
their hands if they have any questions.
After the students are finished with the packets they may
read a book. Some students will not have time to finish
coloring every page. They may pull the packet out to finish
coloring at a later time.

- By having the students work independently

teaches them to solve problems by themselves.
- By having the students raise their hands when they
have a question teaches them to be patient and to be
respectful to others while their peers are working.
-By having the teacher walking around looking at
the students work and engaging with the students
the teacher will be able to help those students who
are struggling and who may not be raising their
hands for help.
-By giving the students a task after they are done
with their worksheet helps minimize sound for other
students, and maintains good classroom

9. Assessment and Evaluation: (Describe how you will assess and/or evaluate the students learning. Describe
differentiating assessment strategies you will use for ELL, special needs students, highly achieving students and low
achieving students.)
This lesson will have an informal assessment. The teacher

throughout this lesson.
-Students work will be looked over to be sure that
their notes are correct; this will help the teacher
decide if she should move on further into lesson or
if there are some areas that need to be revisited
within this current lesson.
-This lesson is the very first lesson and is the
introduction to unit 2. Therefore the pre-assessment
would serve as a means of evaluation as well.

Students will be told that they will have an opportunity to
