Student Handout - Activity 6

Showcasing Your Settlement Group

Name: ___________________ Date: ______________

Graphical element:  Jacques LeCastor  

Let your creative side loose. Divide a piece of paper into four sections. In each section showcase a part of your settlement group's culture.

Culture is everything that goes into making people what they are: food, housing, clothing, jobs, education, etc.

Your task is to use a different medium for each of the cultural elements you choose. For example, in one section you could write a poem that tells about a special tradition of your settlement group. In another section you could create a collage of the food your settlement group eats. In another section you could draw a picture of a typical home. These are just examples. I'm sure you can be even more creative.

This is a showcase to be shared with others. Make your work neat and colourful. Use the rectangle below to plan out your showcase. Then ask your teacher for a large piece of paper for your presentation copy.
