Each lesson is accompanied by resources that are needed for the lesson. In addition, there is a separate Resources web page, for lesson two that contains

  • a list of resources on the Pacific Islands region as a whole
  • a page containing images and a list of resources for each of the six Island entities

Although the list of resources for the region as a whole has been prepared with teachers in mind, the students in each group may be given this general list, as well as hard copies of the resources for their particular Island entity. Each of the Island entity resource lists contains links to online maps. These may be printed and given to each group or students can access them from the list and print the maps themselves.

In designing the unit, it was assumed that most, if not all, Hawai‘i DOE seventh-grade teachers have a classroom set of Reilly Ridgell’s Pacific Nations and Territories, third or fourth edition. Students using the third edition may have to rely on the online resources more than students using the fourth edition, which is more comprehensive.
