Arctic Adventures


Abraham Lincoln School pre-kindergarten students infused green efforts into their winter curriculum. Students in Laura Oddo’s class collected empty milk jugs from their homes and recycled the materials to build an igloo inside their classroom.

More than 672 milk cartons created the igloo where students then met for their daily lessons. While inside the structure, students learned about winter weather changes, hibernation, Arctic habitats and animals. Students also used technology to connect with wildlife through a live video stream, viewing a bear and her cubs hibernating.

Following the winter unit, the Town of Babylon will visit the school to pickup the milk jugs and transport them to the local recycling center.
