Snow Sculptures

Collège Pierre-Elliott-Trudeau
February 21, 2020

Snow Sculptures 5.JPGAs part of a Grade 9 cross-curricula project at Collège Pierre-Elliott-Trudeau, students selected an object that symbolized the origins of Manitoba in celebration of its 150th birthday and sculpted it in snow. 

In social studies, the students needed to connect their object to Indigenous roots. In math, the students needed to draft their object in four lateral views and then scale their creation for the snow sculpture. And in French, students will be explaining their symbolism and the process of transformation from drawings to traditional snow artwork. Nous sommes fiers! (All sculpting tools were purchased at Oakbank Co-op Hardware—the company donated the metal shovels to support the project.)
