People everywhere must find food and shelter. We respond to this concern in different ways, shaped by our environment, by history, and by human creativity. Use this box to infer the locations of shelters based on their size and the materials used to construct them. Challenge yourself to create a shelter that meets specific environment and material requirements. Finally, design the perfect shelter for your community!
