You have just learned all about the lifestyles of Nevada's Desert Archaic People. Many native american tribes today are descendents of the Desert Archaic People.
Welcome to time machine stop #2! During this time machine stop, you will be discovering what qualities made a great leader by look at examples of great Desert Archaic leaders, great Native American leaders, and great leaders in our past.
Consider this important question: What made a great leader in the past, and what qualities still make a great leader today? Why?
You will be given a number of 1-5 at your table.
If you are a #1, you will click on the link below about the Shoshone Leader Washakie. Do you think anyone did not think he was a good leader? Why?
If you are a #2, you will click on the link below about the leader Chief Winnemucca. Do you think anyone did not think he was a good leader? Why?
If you are a #3, you will click on the link below about the Washoe leader Gumalanga. Do you think anyone did not think he was a good leader? Why?
If you are a #4, you will click on the two links below about President Lincoln. Do you think anyone did not think he was a good leader? Why?

Each of your jobs is to learn about your assigned leader, and most importantly, see what kind of qualities or traits your leader had that you think all good leaders should have. You may choose to work other classmates with your same number from different table groups to come up with the leadership qualities of your leader. You may also come up with some qualities that you do not think a leader should display. When you have recorded the good and maybe not so good qualities of your leader in your social studies journal, go back to your table group and each person in your table group will share about their person, and the good or maybe bad qualities they found within their leader.
When everyone in your table group has shared about each other's various leaders, you will each be making a bubble map that displays qualities you think a leader should have. Construction paper, markers, crayons, etc. will be available for you to make your bubble map. You may work with others on your team to complete this task, taking into account the qualities they shared about their leaders as well that make a great leader. Do your best, as this bubble map will be placed in your time machine portfolio before moving on to time machine stop #3. An example bubble map has been provided for you, so check it out to see a simple example of a bubble map about leadership qualities. However, remember to be as creative as you wish with your bubble map. When you have completed time machine stop #2, you may continue to time machine stop #3 for more learning adventures.
