Activity Overview

When students are learning about new peoples, understanding their background and culture is extremely important.

They should include the names of some of the First Nations that live in that region, describe the environment with physical features and climate, and list the natural resources available, including how these were used as food and to create useful items and homes. They may also describe any other cultural traditions or interesting information they find as they learn or research.
