Topic 2 - Frozen Planet!
Learning Intention: To construct a model igloo
This afternoon Beech class children tried their hands at being architects from the tundra and constructed their own model igloos. We used papier-mâché to create a stable base for the igloo upon a paper plate. Next, we used PVA glue to carefully build the ‘snow’ bricks using marshmallows – the best technique was to build in rows for a uniform look that left little gaps. Finally, the children used cotton wool to create a snowy texture for the igloo to stand on which created a realistic look of the Inuit home stood in the arctic tundra.
