Model of Igloo for Class 5 Students

Model of Igloo is one of the commonly given projects for the primary class students in their curriculum as a part of PBL (Project-Based Learning). Making a model of Igloo is very easy as it doesn't involve many colours except for white cotton. And it doesn't involve too much of purchases.

In the above pic you can see the model of Igloo prepared by my daughter studying in Class 5, of course with a helping hand from me. In view of helping the students and their mom (parents) in their school activities, I am herewith sharing the making of a model of an Igloo.

Take a rectangular piece of cardboard from a waste / unused cardboard box and either paint it with white acrylic / poster color or stick a blank white paper on it. If you have enough cotton balls, then no need to paint or stick white paper on the cardboard. Normally I do not encourage the use of thermocole as it non-biodegradable. However, if you don't have any other option, then you can go for thermocole.

Stick popsicles (ice cream sticks) on the four edges of the cardboard as a border / boundary wall and paint it white. Take a round / dome shaped disposable paper bowl and place it inverted (upside down) in one corner of the cardboard. In the above model, I took a coconut shell (which doesn't cost anything) for making igloo.

Stick the inverted bowl / coconut shell on the cardboard with glue. Then apply glue on the entire dome-shaped surface of the inverted bowl / coconut shell and thinly spread cotton on it to give a look of snow. Make a small projected entrance with a small cardboard box and thinly spread cotton on it. Draw rectangular boxes on the dome shape of the igloo with a black marker pen as seen in the above pic.

In a similar way, apply glue on the entire surface of the cardboard and thinly spread cotton on it which gives the look of a snow covered surface. Once you are done with spreading / sticking cotton, place a small reindeer and coniferous trees if you have, otherwise no problem. Placing reindeer and Christmas tree gives a natural snowy look.

I bought the small reindeer and the Christmas tree which you see in the above pic, in King of Prussia Mall in Philadelphia. And then you can place a small doll and drape it with thin cotton. Place the doll i.e. the Inuit beside the Igloo. Your model of Igloo is done.

Terms to learn in this school project.

Igloo

An igloo is a dome-shaped snow house built by Greenlanders (the people of Greenland) during winter season. It is made of blocks of ice with a hole in the centre for the passage of hot air and smoke. The floor is covered with skin and fur of animals.

Inuits

Inuits are also called Eskimos and are the inhabitants of Greenland. They are short in stature and are stout. They have flat faces with narrow black eyes. They are adapted to the harsh climate of the land.
