1.The teacher will allow students to choose a partner to work with.
2.There will be resources for the students to use in creating their games.
3.The teacher will let the students freely choose what type of game they would want to create. The theme must be Native American related, but does not have to be limited to what was covered in the unit.
4.The teacher will walk around to check for understanding. Indian Powwow music will be played while students are working on their project.
5.The teacher will assist students who need ideas or help in constructing their game.
