First Nations Peoples' Dwellings

The Primary Room students have been learning about the First Nations Peoples and the dwellings they lived in. The students built some of the dwellings that they learned about using edible building materials. They made igloos from sugar cubes and frosting; tipis from candy sticks and fruit leather; and sod dwellings made with rice crispy squares and green coconut.

First the students drew an outline of the dwelling they would make rectangles for sod huts, circles for igloos and triangles for tipis.

Next the students created the base of their dwelling.

 From there the students built up their dwellings and used frosting or string to help support them.

 The students had to work carefully to keep the dwellings supported and not fall apart.

 The finished product looks pretty yummy!
