Here's a cool 3D idea that simulates an arctic ice flow breaking up.
- 1 sheet of white construction paper
- Styrofoam scraps
- blue tempura paint
- Beforehand, for each child, cut the white construction paper so it measures 9 inches at the top and 12 inches at the bottom. This creates a depth perception effect.
- Talk about the polar ice caps and show the students pictures.
- Lightly sponge blue paint all over the paper.
- Cut Styrofoam scraps into different-sized jagged pieces.
- Glue the Styrofoam pieces on the paper. Place the biggest pieces close together at the top and space out the smaller pieces as you work your way down the paper. It creates an image of ice breaking up and floating out to sea.
