Tundra Books is pleased to work with teachers who are using our books in their classrooms and who are supporting this use with the suggested activities which we post on our site.

These activities help to teach children about themes as diverse as slavery, religion, creative writing, and world conservation. And most importantly, they encourage children to share ideas and opinions, and to stretch their imagination.

Free use by others is encouraged. Please provide the appropriate copyright credit.

Mounds of earth and shell
Houses of hide and earth
Houses of snow, skin and bones
Houses of wood

Many of the activities can be used with all of the books, while others are specific to one title. The areas covered include music, drama, art, literature, science, and social studies.

Here's a small sample:

Social Studies activities: "Jeopardy" - using a list of newly acquired vocabulary, form questions relating these words. Print the vocabulary on cards. Print the questions on another set of cards. Match them up.

Science activities: The Native peoples respected their land. Compare and contrast their attitude to nature with attitudes of today. Study endangered animals, conservation of soil and water, the dangers to the environment due to progress (clear-cutting of forests, over fishing etc.).
