In this activity, students use the following information to design shanty (home) floor plane for a pioneed family of four. Pioneers came to the prairie with very little money and few belongings. Pioneers used the few trees that were available to build a one room claim shanty (house), furniture and kitchen utensils. The inside and
outside of the shanty was often covered with black tar paper to help keep out the winter cold and snow.
