Homes of Nomadic People

Michael dressed in traditional Mongolian clothing and
playing the a traditional Mongolian instrument, a morin khuur.
Following our theme this year, "Homes, Spaces, and Imaginary  Places," we began a new unit where we will be studying the homes of Nomadic people. This study will involve examining some of the 30 to 40 million nomads in the world. Nomads are people with no permanent home who move for a variety of reasons, several times a year.

In our study the students will learn about the people and particularly the structures they live in.

Today we talked about the people of Mongolia and Michael shared artifacts from his trip to Mongolia.
