Comparing the Lifestyles of First Nations in Different Regions in Canada

Step 1: Identify different categories that make up lifestyle.

Take a look at potential research questions

Step 2: You and your group members will be given a region in Canada. You need to find information about the lifestyle about the different First Nation groups in your region.

- Identify your region
- Write down the members of your group
- Write down which First Nation and Inuit are found in your region
- Identify who will be working on each part

Step 3: Use these research guides to help find specific information about the lifestyle of the people in your region in Canada.



Step 4: Present your information

Present your information as a person from your region. Write about how the life is like in your region specific to the aspect of lifestyle that you focused on. If you were studying subartic clothing, you talk about the types of clothes the First Nations group wore in their regions.
