  2. I won't give you the answer, but think about the diverse landforms/climates of America. The Native Americans of the Midwest built their teepees from buffalo skin, which was an available resource, while the Aleuts of Alaska would build their winter house using snow. It might help you to list different modes of travel, foods, and housing types found in America both past and present. You can discover some good answers through your list.
