The Igloo saga begins!!!

Well we have started!!! Thank you so much to everyone who has donated their empty milk bottles. So far we have used 94 bottles and we are only on our 4th tier!!! We still have a long way to go although we are enjoying our problem solving and working out how to make the structure strong. We have also used our maths skills to work out how many bottle we needed for each level.

Check back soon to see our progress. We are hoping to have our igloo built over the next couple of weeks so we can start seeing what life was like for the eskimos when they went on their hunting trips.

We learnt how to use a hot glue gun safely.

We have each had a turn at placing bottles on the igloo and we are very excited watching it grow. Please talk to your children at home about what they are doing as we will be writing instructions shortly about how to build an igloo.

We sat in a circle and decided how we were going to start our igloo and make it into a circle. We all agreed we needed to have a base to work on and place our milk bottles on there.

We checked to see how big our igloo needed to be.  We want to get more than 1 child inside.
