Laura Reetz’s class at George Washington studied three different Native
American groups from North America, including the Northeastern, Plains
and Far North groups. The students learned how the Native American
groups used natural resources specific to their regions and how they
were utilized in homebuilding.
Then, the students applied their knowledge to design and print 3D models
of the homes. Most students created a model of the exterior, while one
was able to create an accurate model of the interior as well. The
students also studied the groups’ sources of food, clothing, types of
transportation and tools they used.
