Skygarden projects: Igloos in Dubai!

Part of the proprietary Skygarden approach is to deepen and longtail learning. Each class chooses a topic as part of their long term project. This topic has to be very specific and is something the class discusses throughout the year which means they are delving deep into the topic and learning about all facets of it.

For example, one class chose “Igloos” as their long term project this year. So far, they have made UPcycled igloos out of milk jugs and newspapers.One day they also came dressed in winter jackets, hats and gloves and explored ice painting. Yes, ice painting- how creative is that! Throughout this activity they talked about the texture, color, smell and feel of the ice all whilst painting a beautiful masterpiece.

What other things do you think they would talk about? Climates where igloos would be built, uses of an igloo and so much more. It is amazing how much you can grow understanding and vocabulary by choosing 1 topic to focus deeply on throughout the course of the year!
