Early society’s project
For my project I had made a tepee from the Early Native American tribes. A tepee was a home to the Native Americans. A tepee was built like a cone with lumber to make its shape and covered with animal skin and fur that was hunted.

The colonies would use this construction because they had no electricity at that time. Also the tepee would keep them warm.
