Igloo Building

Mrs. Hurley's Humanities 9 and Mrs. Roach's K & E 9 classes were lucky enough to participate in an igloo building workshop during the last week of classes before the break. The students met Cathy Allooloo who owns NARWAL Northern Adventures, (along with her family) who taught the students how to cut blocks from snow and build Inuit snow houses (igloos)! Cathy, being a highly skilled and experienced builder, easily constructed a demo igloo in less than an hour, while sharing stories about Inuit culture and traditions. The students took much longer, but thoroughly enjoyed the day spent outdoors learning a new winter skill.
