4th Grade/Social Studies The purpose of this WebQuest is to provide students with learning concepts and technological experiences to help them understand the origins, similarities, and differences of American Indian groups in Texas and North America.


Before North America was explored by European settlers like Christopher Columbus, it was first home to many different Indian tribes. They lived all over the North American continent and many lived in regions of what is now known as the United States and Texas. There were many different types of North American Indian tribes and each one lived a bit differently, depending on which region they called home. In order to better learn about your country's history it is important that you research and become familiar with the people that first called North America home.
