1. Each day the teacher will read one chapter from the book, “Native American Rock Art: Messages from the Past,” by Yvette La Pierre. Each of these chapters can be used to create a lesson for that day. There are six chapters in this book, and if two chapters are read each week, then the book will last approximately 3 weeks. The teacher will adjust the pace of their study as he/she sees fit.
2. Another book that may be read to the class is, “Stories in Stone: Rock Art Pictures by Early Americans,” by Caroline Arnold.
3. Other stories about Native Americans can also be found and utilized.
