Geography and Climate

*For most of the year the land is covered in snow and the seas are frozen

*This land is considered snow-covered plains, Grasslands (tundra), and some forests

*The land is frozen except for 3 months of the year. Spring arrives in March and April. By May, the snow melts but by October, the first heavy snowfalls begin.

*Temperatures can fall to 50 degrees below zero

plants
  • The land is not suitable for farming because it is frozen.
  • The Inuit did not grow crops because it was too cold.

Animals
  • The Inuit relied on hunting and fishing for food.
  • From the sea, they hunted seals, whales, and fished using harpoons.
  • From the land, they hunted caribou and polar bears.
  • Much of what they ate was raw.
  • Oil from sea mammals, especially whales, gave the Inuit fuel for cooking and for oil lamps.
  • Tools were made from bones.
clothing
Clothing
  • The Inuit used animal skins and fur to make their clothing.
  • Shirts were made of bird skin.
  • Pants and coats were made from animal fur.
  • They wore mittens and boots called kamiks.
shelter
Shelter
  • The Inuit word for house is iglu.
  • What we call an igloo is an igluviak or snowhouse to them.
  • Most snowhouses were temporary shelters, used while the Inuit where hunting by the sea.
  • The snow blocks were cut with a large knife or saw.
  • In many areas in Canada, children take igloo building lessons.
  • When they weren’t hunting by the sea, they lived in turf houses.
