Lego Lab School Snow Globe
A Lego Snow Globe, build by Kindergarteners
About this creation

This is the school I'm so fortunate to teach at. For the annual fundraising campaign, the theme was spheres. We broke (a little) and made a snow globe of the school. I donated my own pieces and built the model in midi-scale. I took pictures as I took it apart and then showed them to my students in reverse order (these are Kindergarteners).





Here's an example of one part:










Okay, you've got your build, but you also need to hot-glue the pieces together or it will fall apart!






Now use contact cement to attach it to the bottom of your "tank". Then, fill with glitter and other "snow" add water and some glycerine, and voila, Lego snow globe. Oh, but attaching the top so that it's waterproof, uh, clear plumbers glue (silicon), it sort of works.



The family that bought it was kind enough to donate it back to the classroom, so it sits in the corner for future classes to admire!

Cool, Dave. I know I commented on this before, but it's still cool. So, I'm really wanting to start Lego classes after school or during a break, but I don't know where to start. Can you come over to the Lego in Education group and give me a few pointers? http://www.mocpages.com/group.php/7872
