The video and note sheet will teach students the Trail of Tears, the 5 Civilized Tribes, and President Jackson's determination to move Indian nations west. It then covers how the Creek and Chickasaw were the first to experience the tragic journey before the Cherokee debated what to do- leading to the illegitimate New Echota Treaty and how Chief John Ross and other Americans protested against it. Lastly, it covers the harrowing journey that led to the deaths of nearly 25% of the Cherokee people and leaves students to consider the continued legacy of this event.
✅ The lessons cover state-standards while making sure the content is still interesting.
