Comparison of different native groups focuses on shelters.
Define the word native. Name and list all the native nations, in your own country or another, that you have heard about. Confirm and expand this list by researching the first peoples who first lived in the country where you live. Make maps and notes with Crayola® Colored Pencils.
In small groups, choose four nations from the list. Study the homes in which these people lived. How did their homes look? Of what were they were built? At what time of year were they lived in? Were these homes permanent or temporary? Where were they placed in relation to the landscape or to each other? How large (or small) were they? Record your findings.
Find out what people and/or animals lived inside these native homes. Explain what you mean by family. Does this include grandparents, aunts and uncles, or cousins? Or did only one gender or one age live together?
Divide a large piece of construction paper into four sections, one on top of another. With Crayola Crayons, illustrate four different native shelters using the information you found about each group. Label each section with the preferred name of the native group.
What is the same about these four shelters? What is different? What influences may have caused these differences? Compare the shelters you drew with those completed by other groups.
