Social Studies- First Trimester Project- Native American Dwellings
Each tribal group across America lived in a home that was designed to fit their specific needs, depending on the land and their way of living. You will be creating a 3 dimensional model of a specific dwellings your chosen group lived in during the time period we learned about in class. The house should have details (decorations, tribal markings, grass and other natural objects). It is not necessary to purchase figurines of people and animals for your project). One suggestion would be to draw people and animals and glue them in. The details must be associated with where the group was geographically located.
You will write one paragraph to describe the housing style and why this group would have chosen this type of dwelling. Be sure to include where they found the materials they used from the environment and why they used the materials. For example: pitch roofs were used by the Haida because they lived in a forest where it rained a lot.
You will write one paragraph describing the steps you took to create your dwelling and who helped you. The second paragraph will describe what you learned about Native American Dwellings while doing this project.
