Native American Tribes Notebooking Pages (Report Pages) for Kids Post Preview: This packet contains notebooking (or report) pages for ten different Native American tribes. It is perfect for many elementary grade levels for learning more about the native people of the United States and for working on research skills.
History has always been one of my favorite subjects in school. Despite the fact that a history class was one of only three Cs I earned while in college, I still love it. (I got As in my other history classes.)
To help you with your history and social studies this year, I have a brand new packet on the site today. Not only will it help with learning more about some of the native people of the United States, but it is also a great way to work on research skills.
Whether students are in elementary school or college, research is a skill to encourage. It is truly a skill that will serve them throughout their lives.
In today’s printable, I have a set of 10 report pages or notebooking pages about various Native American tribes. I’m excited that this set can be used by a wide range of ages of students since you can set your own guidelines about how much information must be gathered for each information section.
Note: The Native American Tribes Notebooking Pages are available much farther down in the post.

Native American Tribes Notebooking Pages (Report Pages) for Kids
While this would make an excellent project to work on throughout the school year, I hoped to make it available by Thanksgiving in case people wanted to have their students or children work on the page about the Wampanoag people in the lead up to Thanksgiving. The Wampanoag are the tribe that joined the Pilgrims at the first Thanksgiving.
Contents of the Native American Tribes Notebooking Pages
This packet is twelve pages long. This includes both a cover page and directions/copyright page. There are also ten separate report pages about different tribes.
Each notebooking page has space for facts about the following topics:
- Other Interesting Information I Learned
To adjust the level of difficulty for different ages, you can require a different number of details or facts from various ages.
Native American Tribes included in this packet (one page per tribe):
- Plains Indians – the “Plains Indians” are actually a collection of tribes and students could gather facts about the tribes of the American and Canadian plains in general or they can write in a specific tribe at the top and then write facts specifically about that tribe, such as the Blackfoot Tribe, the Dakota Tribe, and the Pawnee Tribe, for example.
How to Use the Native American Tribes Notebooking Pages
As I already mentioned above, you can definitely adjust the level of difficulty for this project by requiring fewer facts from younger students and more facts from older students.
You can also decide how you want to distribute this packet to your children or students. Here are a few possible options for how to use the pages:
- You could give them the whole packet of ten pages at once. Set a due date and allow time for researching. (I do not recommend this option for young students.)
- Give students or your children just one page at a time. Spread the learning and research out over days, weeks, or months.
- Even distribute the various pages to individuals or small groups in a classroom or co-op setting. Have students or groups write up their research and then share what they learned with others.
- Distribute these pages for the purpose of gathering facts in order to write a short paper about the Native American tribe.
It’s also a great idea to have students look up information about the tribe before they color in the pictures. This will help students make more accurate color choices.
