August Create Date project: What Makes Shelter?

Humans, unlike many other creatures, require shelter from the elements in order to survive. The type of shelters made by humans varies greatly across history and geography.

Explore different kind of shelters and the variety of materials used to construct them. From the felt yurts of Mongolia, to the adobe homes of the American southwest, and the animal hide tipis of the  tribes of the Great Plains, humans have used all sorts of materials to create shelter to suit their needs.

Design and create your own model of an ideal shelter. Will your shelter be designed for a specific climate? Will it be mobile? What special needs will your shelter serve?  We will have a variety of materials on hand to experiment with!
