Stones, Reeds, Stilts … Places People Live

Posted by on January 10, 2014

Home is a shelter from storms – all sorts of storms. 

~William J. Bennett

In December, while learning more about voluntary no-contact indigenous groups after an amazing Skype with Ashli and Zoe, we discovered that some indigenous groups build their houses high up in the canopy of rainforest trees! It’s funny how one question can lead to another … and another … and ANOTHER!

Because SO many of us were intrigued with these houses perched high above the ground, we HAD to learn more about where people live in the world! Here are some of our RECENT discoveries. We are CERTAIN that this investigation will lead to MANY more questions about the world … that’s what we LOVE about the LEARNING process!

“Wow! Along the Amazon River houses are built on poles. I wonder how they do that? It makes their homes safe from the floods in the rainy season!” ~Sam

“Wow! We didn’t even know that was possible! Clay and straw houses?!? How can that be? In Gaza they build brick houses out of clay, straw and water. It’s amazing! They dig the clay where they are building the houses right out of the ground beside it. These sandy brown clay bricks are super strong and flexible which makes them more stable during earthquakes. Did you know that the bricks keep hoes warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer? These houses are sure different than the ones in Canada!” ~Lane & Amy

“Hey, did you know that our class is studying about interesting houses around the world??? Well, we are studying about cave houses! Did you know people have been hollowing out caves to make homes for many thousands of years? People still do it today. Some ancient cave homes are hidden throughout the world. Cave houses are naturally quiet. Oh my gosh did you guys know that cave houses have constant temperature? They are cool in summer and warm in winter! Did you also know cave houses are not available anywhere but in the mountains? Hey! Read THIS interesting fact! Cave houses are also found in France, China, Italy, Turkey, Tunisia, Spain, Jordan, Australia and the United Kingdom? Are you getting hot? Well, did you know that there can be pools in cave houses? Do you want to see what a cave house is like? Well you can, at Cave Hotel … trust us … it’s awesome! In China, during the war, lots of people lived in cave houses because their houses got destroyed. In China millions of people still live in cave houses. Sometimes they even live in underground caves. Cave houses are different from your house of course! Cave houses are hard to spot but you are lucky if you have spotted one! If you want to learn more about cave houses search cave houses. We had the BEST time researching!” ~ Kennedy & Kelly

“Hey, Aya and Hilary, did you know that Spain has underground houses? They make most of their furniture out of anything they can find. They mostly use wood and rocks. Their underground houses are built right in the earth. They have stairs that go right down to their underground houses. The floor is made out of stone and dirt. They use dirt for the walls. They mix water and dirt to make their own clay. We hope we can do this again!” ~ Jenna, Hilary & Aya

“The houses we researched were the Hakka houses in China. The hakka people used hard soil for the building materials. There is also a building called a tulou. It is usually a large enclosed building. The outer walls have gun holes for defensive purposes. Most of the houses are circular but some of the houses are square. Usually the outer wall on the ground floor does not have windows! You can find the Hakka houses in Fujian China. We hope we can search for more interesting facts from the Hukkas.” ~ Peng Peng, Alex & Isaac

“Tip, tap, Daniel typed on the keyboard. Hey, Kale, I can’t find any good information. Kale, did you know that there are schools on the floating Peruvian Islands? We searched a different website and it said you could eat the reeds! We told Mrs. Renton that you could eat the reeds and she said maybe you could have a nibble of your house, since the whole entire islands are made out of reeds! On Wikipedia it said they made their island on the water because it would give them protection! I forgot to tell you that these islands are in Peru on Lake Titicaca! The tribe who lives on the floating reed islands are called the Uru. There are ropes attached to sticks and the sticks are driven into the island and the bottom of the lake. Mrs. Renton thought it was so the islands wouldn’t move. It was fun researching!” ~Daniel & Kale

“I wonder why the Incas expanded their land? The Urus were forced to live on the reed islands. Did you know that there are 35 floating islands on Lake Titicaca? Isn’t it cool that the roofs are waterproof? They hunt fish and shore ducks. The largest floating reed island is currently Tribuna. When the layers rot … they have to replace new layers.  Did you know that the reeds are called totora? The people wear wool so their skin won’t burn because they are at a high altitude. They put down rocks for a fire. Did you know that there are homes for 2000 Urus living on the islands? I wish we could know more about why the Incas expanded their land.” ~Zyne, Ethan & Martin

“Tap, tap, tap went the keyboard. Let’s look up stilt wooden houses of the Miao tribe! The stilt houses are made out of wood. The Miao folks live in a high cold mountain area which is wet. Wooden stilt houses are also known as suspended wood houses. Most people in the areas of Greenwich live in wooden stilt houses. Wooden stilt houses are thought of as living fossils because they show the history of the Miao culture for over many years. Each storey has three to five rooms. The upper layer is used to store stuff.” ~Cohen & Melvin

“Hey, Noam, did you know that in the 1400s in England they built their houses out of poop, (animal manure LR), and straw? Really! I didn’t know that! Then, England caught on fire so they decided that they would build their houses out of stone! Did you know that in England they also live in cave houses? You can find cave houses in the UK, France, China, Spain, Iran, Missouri, Australia, Arizona, Galera, Cappadocia, Vourvoulos, Turkey and many more countries! Cave houses are usually old! I hope we can research MORE!” ~Noam & Claire

We know that THESE interesting houses are only the TIP of the iceberg! There are MANY more interesting houses around the world. We’ve discovered that people are AMAZING! SO many cultures build with the materials they have at hand … the materials they find freely around the areas they build in. Ross Mannell told us about the underground houses in the outback of Australia! We learned a little about Petra, Jordan and the underground buildings in Lalibela, Ethiopia! But, as with ANY good learning, we still have SO many questions! We hope you can help us to discover even MORE about our amazing world:

We wonder:

  • have you ever visited any of these amazing homes?
  • what was it like?
  • have you visited or learned about any OTHER interesting houses that you think we should investigate?

Peace is not unity in similarity but unity in diversity, in the comparison and conciliation of differences.

    Hi Miss Renton and class

    I think you guys all did a great job.
    I love the video of the Peru lake!

    Jenna

    P.S this comment was from my iPad
    Bye

    • Laurie Renton

      Good morning, Jenna!

      Thank you for your comment! I love that you checked the blog out using your iPad!

      I loved the video of Lake Titicaca too! This post makes me wonder SO many more things! I wonder how long the reeds last before they need replacing. I also wonder how LONG it would take to make a cave house or a home that is dug into the ground. There are SO many OTHER kinds of interesting houses … I wonder about them too! What part did you enjoy the most? Does it make you wonder anything else?

      Mrs. Renton 🙂

      • Jenna

        Hey Miss Renton! 🙂

        What I wonder is, how long does the reeds have to be? 😉

        I just LOVED the Lake Titicaca video! 🙂

        Have a great night! 🙂

        Bye! 🙂

        Love Jenna! 🙂

        • Laurie Renton

          Hi Jenna!

          Funny … you must have left this while I was working on all your awesome baby animal research posts! Hmm. You’ve asked a VERY good question about the totoro reeds. From the pictures, the reed look VERY tall. I wonder if THIS is another WONDER for our WONDER wall. What do you think?

          I loved the Lake Titicaca video too. I love that, if you can’t GO there, someone else has and can share their experiences through video! That video really told us some valuable information about life on the Uros Islands!

          Mrs. Renton 🙂

    Hello, Mrs.Renton and class

    Don’t you think the floating read islands are super cool!!! anyway this will be a super short comment.

    I enjoy being taught by Mrs.Renton don’t you classmates!!!

    Well this is the end of my comment but I will write another one soon!!!

    Kennedy 😉

    • Laurie Renton

      Hi Kennedy!

      Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a comment! We definitely love the floating islands on Lake Titicaca. It is amazing to think that the Uru people can live on islands made of reeds. That video did such a great job of showing the actual reeds, the houses and the amazing boats they build from the totoro reeds!

      I think we would ALL love to find a video that shows us how they actually MAKE their islands! Maybe one of the Battalion Bloggers will take the triple doggy dare and do some research to find a great video or website that takes us through the steps!!!

      Mrs. Renton (on behalf of the Battalion Bloggers!) 🙂

        Hi Mrs.Renton

    Hi Battalion Bloggers
    I really enjoyed the post. It was awesome!!! I really enjoyed reading everybody’s writing. I particularly liked the video about the reed island in Peru.

    • Laurie Renton

      Hi Noam and awesome family!

      Thank you so much for leaving a comment on the blog! We sure hope Noam told you just how GRATEFUL we were to you for sharing your amazing photos with us! It’s always SO much nicer to use photos from the people we know, like our families, or Lauren, or Ashli!

      We had a lot of fun researching our discoveries for this post … and learned SO many cool things along the way!

      We would LOVE to hear about what it was LIKE to visit those amazing places in the photos! Were the cave houses cold? What did they look like inside?

      Mrs. Renton (on behalf of the Battalion Bloggers) 🙂

    Hi Mrs. Renton

    How are you doing? And the blog looks great! And my sister says hi! 🙂 I really like sketching because you can do lots of different techniques like using different shades and colours! Well now i got to go to bed. Bye Miss Renton!

      I am glad that you enjoy sketching. Me too. Which tri-fold did you enjoy sketching the MOST when we explored the Fort Calgary kit?

      Sleep tight … don’t let the bedbugs bite! 😉

      Mrs. Renton 🙂

  5. Kelly

    Hi Miss Renton

    I am right now eating but my sister says there are a lot of pictures and she told me that we are going to paint Ukrainian eggs and sketch Peruvian Pots and The Clay Mask! Well my favorite try_ fold is the Tunisia try_fold.

    Kelly. 🙂

    • Laurie Renton

      Hi Kelly!

      I think it is LOVELY that you go home and check the blog at lunch! Now THAT is DEDICATION! Your sister is right. There are a LOT of awesome photos on the blog, from earlier posts, that show Q’enqo and the process of helping to build the library!

      There are also some cool photos of some of the projects we’ve doing along the way! We won’t do all the things that your awesome sister will remember … but SOME of them, like the clay masks, are a MUST!

      I love the Tunisian tri-fold too, Kelly! Mrs. D. did that one! That camel is just SO adorable that I could take it home!!!

      Have an awesome night, Kelly!

      Mrs. Renton 🙂

      I am looking forward to watching The Indian in the Cupboard as well. I always love reading a book and THEN watching the movie to see how they compare. I wonder which one you will like more … the book … or the movie?

      The mask making will be an AMAZING experience. I wonder how many people will check the blog now that they know how to use the TAGS to find posts about SPECIFIC topics now that we have explored what the TAGS are for? 😉

      Have an AWESOME night, Kelly!

      Mrs. Renton 🙂

      Now the challenge is to find an awesome video that shows us how to build the reed islands! I WONDER who is UP for THAT challenge?!? 😉

      Mrs. Renton 🙂

      PS Is it THIS one? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2R8oKxEzLGk

      • Kennedy

        Kennedy!!! 😉

        • Laurie Renton

          Hi Kennedy!

          I am thrilled to hear that I found the video you were talking about! Are you up for telling the class about it on Monday? I think we should watch it!

          I also found a pretty good video for showing how the reed islands are constructed, but I agree – we should see who’s up for that triple doggy dare on Monday! I’ll let you talk about that TOO, if you WANT to!!!

          I hope your weekend is fabulous, Kennedy! Enjoy that beautiful sunshine and warmth!

      Mrs. Renton 🙂

  14. Trisha

    Hi Mrs. Renton!

    This blog is awesome! I love it, I kinda wish my class could have such a great blog like this. Everyone is leaving comments and sharing lots of things, anyways what’s going on in the classroom, I’m super curious about it. Kelly’s been driving me nuts about the marinet. Kelly says hi. Bye! See you later!

    Trisha . 🙂 😉

    • Laurie Renton

      Hi Trisha!

      What a lovely surprise! An old blogger visits the “new” blog!

      I am glad that Kelly is excited to share her learning with you! I sure hope she is feeling better this afternoon! I am glad that Kelly is telling you all about the marionettes also! Maybe she will teach you how to MAKE one! She certainly has the skills! 😉

      Mrs. Renton 🙂

  15. Kennedy

    Hello Mrs.Renton

    I am just about to show my parents the magic trick that you taught us today I am so EXCITED!!!!!! 🙂

    I can’t believe that we have 29 comments that have been left on the blog!!!!

    well I got to practice some dance and math so bye!!! 😉

    Kennedy!!! 🙂

    • Laurie Renton

      Hi Kennedy!

      You’re right … we’ve had a TON of comments on this post! I WONDER if anyone will take our “triple doggy dare” and try to find out if llamas and alpacas DO live on the reed islands?

      I can’t wait to hear what happens when you show them the “magic trick”! You will have to tell us ALL about the experience at school on Monday!

      I finished sewing all our marionette hair after school today … I CAN’T wait to see what they look like when they are ALL dressed in their traditional clothing! I am SO excited!

      Mrs. Renton 🙂

  16. Peng Peng

    Hi Mrs. Renton!

    This is my first comment on the blog!
    I have done the magic trick already! My parents were very surprised at first. I think that I will take that triple doggy dare and find out if lamas or alpacas do live on the reed island

    See you on Monday!

    From Peng Peng

    • Laurie Renton

      Hi Peng Peng!

      What an absolutely WONDERFUL surprise to wake up to this morning! I LOVE that you have left a comment on the blog. I love, even MORE, that you are going to take that “triple doggy dare”! I can’t wait to find out what you discover!

      I wonder what your parents’ favourite blog post is from this year so far? We’ve made some pretty cool discoveries and written about some pretty awesome topics and issues!

      Did you find out anything more about Mobius strips? I LOVE the daily wonder on Wonderopolis … and love that we have that widget on our blog!

      Mrs. Renton 🙂

      • Peng Peng

        Hi Mrs.Renton!

        I am right now at the Olimpic Oval! I was reaserching about if llamas or alpacas live on the reed islands! I am not so sure about llamas or alplacas live on the reed islands but I found out that the Uros were forced to make reed islands and live on them by the Incas!

        Right now my dad does not know what blog post he liked the most.

        Well this is the end of my coment.

        See you later Mrs.Renton

        Peng Peng.

        • Laurie Renton

          Hi Peng Peng!

          I am also having a tough time finding out if llamas and alpacas actually live on the Uros Islands with the Uru people. I’ve been digging, and I know a few other Battalion Bloggers have been digging. I am beginning to think they must not. But … you know how THAT goes … THEN it makes me wonder if they keep GUINEA PIGS in their houses like they do in Q’enqo and Ollantaytambo!!! I also wonder what OTHER animals live on the islands!

          I know that when we were doing our research a few weeks ago we discovered that the Uru people made reed islands because of something to do with the Incas … but … we never did find out WHY! I’d LOVE to dig a little deeper into THAT question! History … SO cool!

          I LOVED that you were at the Olympic Oval and doing some research! WAY to go, Peng Peng!

          Mrs. Renton 🙂

    Hello Mrs.Renton

    33 COMMENTS!!! I think the class has been checking out the blog more don’t you think so!!!! It’s great for Peng Peng to leave his first comment (I think it is his comment) 😉

    Brenden wishes that he can be in your class again because he really enjoyed being in your class actually to tell you the truth you are one of his favourite teachers so far!!! 🙂 Brenden says hi!!! 😉

    well that will be the end of my comment!!!

    Kennedy!!! 🙂 😉

    P.S I enjoy being in your class and you are one of my favourite teachers also!!! 😉

    • Laurie Renton

      Hi Kennedy!

      You’re right – I think that our classmates are really getting into the swing of blogging now! I LOVE it. I always think it’s exciting to check to see who has left the next comment!

      We are SO close to 19000 hits now, I can’t believe it. It may even happen this weekend! I will have to “screen shot” it if that happens!

      I loved working with Brenden. That’s what I love about a community school … getting to work with families as siblings come through! Did Brenden see the photo that we credited with the necklace he gave to me?

      Thank you for making me feel special, Kennedy! I feel pretty lucky to do what I get to do each and every day!

      Mrs. Renton 🙂

      Hi Tatum!

      What a LOVELY surprise! I LOVE that you left a comment on our blog! We’ve had a lot of fun with this blog … and learned some pretty amazing things! I know that YOU are doing awesome things in YOUR classroom too! I LOVE that we have been able to work on marionettes together! I can NOT wait to see what they all look like once they have their traditional clothing!

      That video of Uros Islands was an AWESOME find! I just WISH we could find out whether or not llamas and alpacas live on those reed islands, or if the Uru people have to take their boats to the mainland to purchase the wool for their weaving!

      Hope you keep coming back and leaving awesome comments, Tatum!

      Mrs. Renton 🙂

      Thank you for sharing the blog with Tatum, Kennedy! It makes me feel good to know that you are excited enough to share it with your friends!

      I wonder which blog post Tatum has enjoyed the most? Since we are both working on marionettes, I wonder if you shared the marionette Animoto post from last year?
