Students choose a country that interests them and locates it on a world map. Find out what types of homes people in that country lived in traditionally and where they live now. In China, for example, families who fish may still live on boats called junks, while city dwellers usually live in apartments. In the Philippines, some families live in houses on stilts. Some Navajo families today live in traditional 8-sided homes called hogans, but most of them live in ranch-style homes.
