Polar pets and 3D snow globes!

Using mathematical knowledge to make 3D snow globes!

In our class book, 'The Polar Bear Explorers' Club', Stella receives a gift of 'polar pets' inside a miniature igloo from her father. We decided to make our own versions in 3D snow globes.

We used our mathematical knowledge of the properties of circles to help us. We learnt how to set a pair of compasses to the radius so that we could draw the circles and then decorated them before slotting them together with our polar pets inside!
