How did the pioneers build their homes when they first settled in Canada? What kind of materials did they use?
Students will explore how our Canadian pioneers used the natural resources on hand to create a homestead.
Using similar building techniques that pioneer settlers used, each student will build a wooden log cabin to take home! The ends of the logs are notched with a single saddle notch and the logs form an interlocking joint when another notched log is set over it at a right angle.
A great project to connect to your curriculum for any grade level or can be a wonderful gift for special occasions!
