Marshmallow Igloos at Lithia Springs

With winter fast approaching the students at Lithia Springs were excited to celebrate by creating igloos. Before the activity, the students learned about tundra ecosystems. Tundra ecosystems are treeless regions found in the arctic. The students created an igloo they believed would keep them safe in the -30 degrees Fahrenheit weather in the tundra ecosystems. The base of the igloo is a plate with a bowl secured on top. To create a snow effect the students pasted marshmallows on the bases they created. After achieving the perfect igloo the students used markers to add color to the igloo.
