Shelter & Structures:
A House for a Mouse
Grade 3

At the Galleries


A morning discovery walk through Gairloch Gardens will allow students to observe and identify the differences between natural and human-made shelters and structures. Students will consider the strength and stability of these structures, and explore their environmental impact through building makeshift shelters out of natural materials in the Gardens. In the afternoon, students will work individually to create model structures of their own design out of clay.

  • Full day
