What is a Primary Source? A primary source is something that is created or produced during the time of study. They are important, because they can give us an insiders understanding of that time. Examples of primary sources are: Something written during that time Photos taken during that time Art, drama, or music created during that time Buildings, clothing, jewelry or tools created during that time

The Chumash used what grew around them for foods, tools, housing, and medicine.
Chumash People were expert basket makers.

Directions 1.Insert blank slides after the Tomol Slide, and after the Language Slide. 2.Insert a text box in each slide. 3.In the first slide, write a paragraph explaining what you learned about how the Chumash people used their environment to get what they needed to live. Use the slides that you have viewed to help you with this. 4.In the second slide, reflect upon how different life would be without a written language. What would be different about your daily life if you could speak your words, but not write them down? 5.If you have extra time, look for a links to other interesting sites that will help us to understand Chumash activities and culture. Ask Mrs. Cota for help in placing these on your slides.
