This is a fun, hands-on, inexpensive, research-based activity that allows students to research, read, learn about, write, and create. Students will research their CA Native American tribe to find out about their dwelling, lifestyle, and culture. They will then do a short write-up about the tribe, including their CA location, how many people lived in a dwelling, and how they lived. The write-up accompanies a desk-size, accurate depiction of their tribe's dwelling. Students are encouraged to use as many natural products as possible to truly understand the work of the Native Americans.
