Emotional – Images and Questions


The following gallery shows images from the longhouse and its interior combined with questions that you might ask your class.

The questions embedded in the slideshow are as follows:

  1. Imagine what life would be like in a longhouse. What do you imagine that would have been like?
  2. This is an image of the hearth. Imagine meals being made, and what things might have been like when it was cold. What do you think?
  3. Imagine the community effort that went into building these longhouses. Have you ever participated in building a home or any kind of dwelling? What was that like?
  4. Think about how you or your family store food. How much food do you have in your home?
