    Begin this worksheet exercise by asking your students who the Native Americans are. Do they know the answer to that? If they don't, use this opportunity to give them a short history lesson on America. The text in this printout descries the events that happened way back in the past, when the first Pilgrims arrived in America. Read the text about the Native Americans to your students, and then circle the past tense if the verbs beneath the text.
