This activity is aimed at Key Stage 3 students (or could also be used with years 5/6) studying the North American Indians and can be used as a stand alone activity (especially as a lesson for a cover/supply teacher) or as part of the overall topic on The First Americans. The activity introduces some basic symbols used by American Indians and then asks students to complete a number of activities using a key of symbols. These activities involve: writing a picture story, deciphering a message, producing a picture message and designing a set of simple symbols.
