Minecraft Igloo 

          

Define the biome and its climate. What makes it different from other biomes?

 Tundra:  Tundra is the most coldest in the biomes. One of the characteristics of the Tundra is that there is a Large population. Another characteristic is that they only have a short season of growth and they have a low biotic diversity. There are three types of tundra: Alpine Tundra, Arctic Tundra and the Antarctic Tundra. The land is mostly flat with no trees. Below the ground there is soil called permafrost that stays frozen for most of the year.

Describe the biome’s plant and animal life. How have the plants and animals adapted to fit the biome?

Alpine Tundra: The plants and animals are well adopted and they are very similar to the arctic ones. For example, in the Alpine Tundra a lot of mountain goats live and they are surefooted for rocky mountains and they have thick fur to protect themselves from the coldness. Most of the animals have white fur so that they can cover in with the snow.

List some good examples of places where this biome is found on the Earth.
Canada,Norway, Finland, Sweden, Russia, Iceland, Greenland, Alaska

Describe – What real buildings are good examples of traditional life in this biome? Who built them and when? (add some pictures and sources if possible)

Where building materials such as wood, stone and brick are not available. For centuries, the Inuit people used igloos as temporary houses. Although a house made of snow might seem too cold to be comfortable, igloos actually act like a large snow blanket, trapping body heat. An igloo can reach temperatures of up to 50 degrees inside.

This is a Igloo 

 Explain – what features of the building show that the people adapted to live in that particular biome?

1. Dome- shape shelter made out of snow blocks and the blocks.
2.The blocks were cut from the snow, and piled in a spiral shape, leaning in slightly. 3.This gave the igloo its dome shape.
4.Soft snow was used to fill any holes, and add extra insulation.
5.Depending on the size of the igloo, it usually took the Inuit 20-30 minutes to build.
6.Larger, more permanent igloos could reach 4 metres in diameter and 3 metres in height. Sleeping platforms were made of ice blocks, covered with fur.
 

(Extra credit /Early finishers:) How would you design a new house or other living space for living well in this biome? What special features, materials, etc. would it have, and why?

We would design our house by making a temporary, dome- shape shelter made out of snow blocks and the blocks. The blocks were cut from the snow, and piled in a spiral shape, leaning in slightly. This gave the igloo its dome shape.
Soft snow was used to fill any holes, and add extra insulation.
Depending on the size of the igloo, it usually took the Inuit 20-30 minutes to build.
Larger, more permanent igloos could reach 4 metres in diameter and 3 metres in height. Sleeping platforms were made of ice blocks, covered with fur. 

How did you feel about the use of Minecraft to model the structure? How did the collaboration on your structure go? Would you rather have done it using a different format (photos, drawings, etc.)? Would you want to use Minecraft in connection to other projects in the future? Why or why not?

I felt about using Minecraft was fun but I think Minecraft was a little disturbing to people like the boys in class. I think our igloo was pretty good. I think it was good to be partners because you don’t have to do all the questions and building. I think minecraft was good to build a building because its not that hard than drawing a igloo. I think like if we our unit was about Areas then we can build a building. I think that will help and have some fun because its good if we have balance of fun and working.

Early Human Talk Show

October9

Reflection: In humanity class we took this video because we were learning about early humans.I pretended to be a Australopithecus afarensis for a interview about them self. I think I did I very good job because I communicate clearly, my script is organized and I think I did a good job on answering my question. Am proud of myself by talking loudly then last year. My goal is to look at the camera then looking at the script.
