Let your learners find out firsthand what hunting and gathering was really like, with a role-play activity they will remember for years. The class researches how indigenous people used plants and animals to survive while respecting and conserving the earth's natural resources. They construct mock weapons, similar to those used by the Creek and Cherokee tribes, then go on a mock hunting expedition to get a firsthand understanding of what life was like for hunter/gathers. Each child composes an essay describing and explaining the weapon-making process as well as what it felt like to hunt for dinner.
