Students studied the history of yurts and traced them back to ancient Mongolia. Their study then delved into Mongolian history, culture, ecology, and specific details about yurts. Students took their knowledge to create a model replica of a yurt and labeled the key features and their significance. Models were then incorporated into dioramas that depicted the Mongolian landscape. The dioramas were finalized with an infographic backdrop that cataloged Mongolian culture, traditions, history, and ecology.
