The Worlds in Motion Web site, created by the Senator John Heinz History Center, a Smithsonian Affiliate in Pittsburgh, is designed for use by educators teaching about American Indians on the Colonial Frontier and the French and Indian War. It contains extensive and comprehensive lesson plans for students of all grade levels. The lessons expand perceptions of Eastern American Indians and their role in colonial-era history.  Each lesson includes grade level recommendations, a lesson abstract, an activity with process guidelines and tips, and evaluation tools.  The lessons are based upon student use of primary artifacts and documents, literature, and the visual and performing arts.
