    One fact I learned about watching the longhouse video was that the Iroqois thought there was an invisible longhouse stretched across NY state. Another fact I learned was that there was cabins in the shape of tunnels. My last fact I learned was there was benches on the sides of the longhouse's that were 4 feet high. Those were my three facts about watching the loinghouse video.

    In this video, I learned many things. One fact I learned is that the Iroquois thought that there was a invisble long house acrossed the New York state. Another fact I learned is that the cabins are shaped in tunnels. Then, the benches on the sides were 4 feet long. Last of all, there were 12 fires in one longhouse and 24 familes living there. In conclusion, these are the facts I learned from this video.

    You have added interesting facts that you have learned from the video and I'm glad that you are able to digest what you have seen and put it into your own words.  However, please remember that you MUST check your spelling before posting!!!!!

    I hope and my friend juliette watched the longhouse video and we learned that there is only one window in a longhouse for the smoke to exit the longhouse. We also learned that they had benches all around the longhouse that they sleep on.

  10. pmcfadden says:

    From this video we learned that when boys turn 10 they start traveling and hunting with their fathers. We also learned that the Iroquois are very thankful for what the creator had given them such as clothing and bedding.The Iroquois wore animal skins and moccasins. They also wore leggings and beaver fur. If the Iroquois were outside to long then they could get frostbite. The last fact we learned was because it was so cold and the Iroquois had to stay inside they could starve to death. Those are some facts we learned about the Iroquois tribes.

    -Fatima The first fact I want to say is that the Iroquis go to the ground in winter to be warm, second the iroquis make stuff for memorys,third the long house is made of bark and tree's.

    -Carly 1. Planting was an easy task for the women of the Iroquois tribe. 2. The Iroquois tribe went and built a big longhouse for them to keep in their warmth for a while. 3. The women of the tribe do a lot of work for the children and for themselves with the men too and sometimes the women are the only ones that work for their lives.
