In this section students learned about early Miami lands, the people that lived there, the stories they told, and cultural activities in which they participated. Ask students to create three documents that illustrate their homeland:

  1. Draw a map of your house and yard showing your "homeland".
  2. Show the people that live in your home and describe their roles in your family.
  3. Write a story about an event or activity your family participates in and what it teaches you about your family and your responsibilities to your family.
