Effigy Mounds National Monument Teacher's Guide provides more than 40 lesson ideas developed by teachers to help students learn about Eastern Woodland Native Americans who lived in the upper Mississippi River valley (southwestern Wisconsin and northeast Iowa) from about 500 BC to 1300 AD and who built "effigies" -- ceremonial burial mounds shaped to represent bears, eagles, falcons, bison, deer, turtles, lizards, and other creatures.
