HI!!!!!!BEN here!!!!Have you ever wondered what a Yurt or a Ger is not yogurt a Yurt or a Ger. Possibly but doubtful.Well......if you are ready to go lets go to the amazing world of Yurts!!!!
Using a Yurt.
If you and your family are going on vacation try a yurt.Yurts date back thousands of years and are homes of the Mongolian nomads.When Mongolia gets cold yurts are great!They are also very portable!
Where can you find Yurts???
You might have guessed you can only find yurts in Mongolia but you were .......wrong.You can find them almost anywhere in north america The circular shape of the yurt and secure maner in which the outer covering is attached deflect winds that could knock them over.Confused???Okay you should be.Lets get to the cool stuff.
THE COOL STUFF!
YURTS ARE OVER 1000 YEARS OLD!!!!!!!Cool huh?Well,more than half the people live in yurts!Normally it takes about two hours to build a yurt.If it gets cold you can put felt over the top to keep the hot air in and the cold air out.
WHAT ARE Yurts MADE OF?????
Yurts are made of a wood frame and felt for air circulation, lattice walls and, a door frame.There is more but you would get bored and it might take all the way to diner to read it all.Would you really want that?? Well okay, a Yurt is designed to be easy to dissmantel. When it is dissmantelled it is put on a camel or a yak and is moved somewhere else.Well it really wasn't that long.
You can go to original Mongolian yurts or other sites like that to find other yurty information. Try it! You can also use kids Wikipedia and kids you tube. If you go to kids you tube type in Mongolian yurts.
Would I like to live in a yurt? And why would a 3rd grade student Bastion?!
I would like to live in a yurt because I could ride a camel or cooler, a yak!!! Bastion thinks it would be cool to be on the move all the time.
This is a yurt.
