We've been continuing our winter unit, although it doesn't really feel like winter here. Not to rub it in for those of you with frozen pipes and freezing temps--but it's supposed to be in the 70's today! :)
So we have to use videos and pictures to really get the feel of what winter is like in most places. We learned a little bit about the Inuit people and their customs. We also looked at lots of pics of igloos. I asked them to invent a new way to make an igloo. What materials could we use since we have no snow or ice. I love the variety of answers that they came up with:
big big sugarcubes
Glass-Because animals that are coming just look inside but they are outside (we looked at the picture of the polar bear looking into the igloo).
