Multi-class South Coast Salish Plank House Models

Several classes have been working on creating these detailed Salish Long House models. After learning about the design, students were assigned individual tasks that would contribute to the whole. For example, one class contributed side panels, and another made roof panels or added entranceways. Some classes added the supporting poles with the ‘cedar’ twine and slowly the houses came together. The final class added the landscaping.
