Landers and Builders: Exploring the Impact of Cultural Contact

How does contact with “outsiders” change the way a community functions? What does a society lose or gain as a result of contact with another culture? What must happen for this contact to be seen as successful? Are the decisions made biased or unbiased? Through exploration of artifacts along with group discussion and debate, investigate the effects of cultural contact, its impact on people, the places they live and how these effects can be long term. (Social Studies)
