Welcome to the CTGR 3rd Grade ELA Unit!


The lesson plans below are easily modified and adaptable to the needs of any classroom. They place an emphasis on culture and cultural connections. These lessons can be taught in-conjunction with each other or as stand-alone lessons. The lessons cover a variety of topics including Native lands, ancestors, traditional lifeways, and the connections between past and present. If you are looking for more Native American stories to apply these concepts to, we have provided a list of recommended Native American titles to help further educate students about

Native American history and culture. This Recommended Reading List can be found in the “Other Resources” section of the Curriculum webpage. The lesson plans below include both PDF and presentation documents to be used in the classroom.
