Abstract
 
Description
-The Algonquian language gave us more than 100 words we still use today, including hickory, moose, totem, and woodchuck.

-During the salmon run in the Pacific Northwest, tribes caught so much fish that women had to boil them in dugout canoes.

-Igloos were made by Inuits as temporary homes during seal-hunting season, and they took about an hour to build.

"Tools of Native Americans: A Kid's Guide to the History and Culture of the First Americans" explores how the first Americans learned to survive and thrive by creating tools, culture, and a society based on their immediate environment.
