The Mongolian word for yurt is ger (rhymes with "hair"). These are the traditional homes of livestock-herding nomads across Central Eurasia, including Mongolia. In this craft pack, you will discover Mongolia and learn how a ger is made, who lives in it, and why. You will hear about some of the other places where people live in yurts—and then make your own paper ger!
The page below contains video instructions for making your miniature ger, a link to download a copy of our full activity pack, and some resources to help you explore Mongolia and Mongolian culture.
