QUESTIONS TO ADDRESS:: We know what canoes and toboggans look like, today, but compare the kind of materials used, how they were handcrafted, and how these two modes of transportation were used.
Why did they need both?

From the pictures presented, we know that "toboggans" were sometimes made with runners on the bottom, and sometimes not. What would be the advantages/disadvantages of each?

LOCATE other images and information on the internet… and discuss how their use differed from our own use of toboggans, today.
