This lesson looks at American Indians and their transition from the prehistoric period to the historic period (European Contact) around AD 1650 - 1700. Students will look at prehistoric items used by the Eastern Woodland Indians during the period leading up to European contact around the late 17th and early 18th Century. Students will compare and contrast prehistoric tools and historic tools and look at the impact early Europeans had on American Indians. We'll discuss the impact of trade and how present day American culture has influenced other cultures around the world and how our culture has been influenced by other cultures.
