Indian tribes once spanned the state of California when the arrival of new settlers forced them into a struggle for survival. Learn how three tribes-the Tongva, the Yokuts, and the Yana-played key roles in the growth of California with this primary source reader. California's Indian Nations 6-Pack builds literacy and social studies content knowledge with an emphasis on California state history. The use of primary sources like maps, letters, images, and photographs will engage students and help them look at the world and current issues with a historical lens.

Essential text features include a glossary, index, captions, sidebars, and table of contents to increase understanding and build academic vocabulary. The Read and Respond activity immerses students in the content through diverse, engaging activities related to the content. The Your Turn! activity challenges students to connect to a primary source through a writing activity. Aligned to the National Council for Social Studies (NCSS) and other national and state standards, this nonfiction title is leveled to support above-, below-, and on-level learners. This 6-Pack includes six copies of this title and a lesson plan.
