Project: A Native American Shelter
Due: January 19th
Native American groups each had their own unique culture and they used the natural resources around them to build shelters. I will provide students with reference books, illustrations, and online resources of different Native American shelters. Students will have to choose a shelter to construct. They will have to clearly label their shelter with the name commonly used for it and write brief information about the shelter. Students can use any type of materials that Native Americans did to build their shelters. If you have any materials that would be helpful to our class for this project please share it with us.
