Native American Dwelling Project

Students are to create a longhouse or wigwam.  The dwelling can be constructed of realistic materials (sticks, grass, etc.) or other materials such as popsicle sticks.  Students can work together but each need to turn in their own project.  Students will be given time in class to print out pictures if needed but, the project will need to be constructed at home.  The project is to be no bigger than 8 1/2" by 11" (it needs to be able to fit on a standard size piece of paper).  Please do not have students bring in the project prior to the due date.  Students have a rubric in their social studies folder.  If you have any questions please email me.
