Building an Igloo with Math and FREE Printables
We only built two levels of our igloo and spray painted them orange with food coloring in a spray bottle. So our grand plans of a palatial igloo were dashed and we ended up with a bright snow fort for a few days instead. However, it was so much fun and that was the point!
Supplies you will need:
Ski poles or some kind of stakes
Block form(s) ( this could be a rectangle plastic bin or you can buy a snow brick form)
Spray bottle & food coloring (to paint your igloo or snow fort)
Before you dive into the instructions below are links for some saints who loved Mathematics:
St. Christopher Clavius
Blessed Francesco Faà di Bruno
Blessed Herman the Cripple
Here are some detailed instructions and a couple printables to turn this outdoor adventure into a math lesson. To print theses out click on them and save the image, then you can easily print them out.
