For this activity, we researched igloos and how they were made. We watched this video:
On each table I set out paper plates, a styrofoam cup, a bowl of mini marshmallows, and vanilla frosting.
Without much direction, my students got to work using their background knowledge and their own creativity.
On the board I used our projector to display a few igloo pictures for inspiration.
A finished igloo!
As our Arctic unit was part of our endangered animals unit, my students were very concerned about the polar bears.
