Lessons and Resources for Middle School and High School

The lessons, activities, materials and resources contained in this site were developed for teachers wishing to integrate study of the Wabanakis of Maine - the Passamaquoddy, Penobscot, Micmac and Maliseet - into existing or new curricula. Integral to their development is my on-going participation with the Wabanaki Committee. Without the knowledge, guidance and criticism of the members of this committee, I would not have become committed to what has become the almost daily expansion of my knowledge and understanding of the Wabanakis and of Indian stereotypes. These lessons and resources are a gift freely given to students like myself.

Visitors to this site are encouraged to offer feedback and suggestions for expansion and/or change. Find a form at: Elizabeth Sky-McIlvain
