Hunting & Gathering Exercises

The Ziibiwing Center recommends that the following Hunting & Gathering Exercises be used both before and after a visit to our Diba Jimooyung Permanent Exhibit. Have your students perform online research about the Anishinabe people, then use one of our Hunting & Gathering Exercises, or portions of it, as a pre-test. After your visit, use the same questions as an assessment tool.

Hunting & Gathering Exercises are an optional part of any class trip to the Ziibiwing Center, and may be integrated into tours of the Diba Jimooyung Permanent Exhibit.
