Build a replica of a house using the local materials and construction methods of Brazil! Discover the people and resources of this intriguing South American country.
Look up information about Brazil’s people, climate, vegetation, and other natural resources. What kinds of traditional homes were built in this South American country? You will find that some homes were made with mud, sticks, and leaves. Take students outdoors and collect thin sticks that have fallen from trees. Have students wash their hands when they return.
Students use Crayola® Model Magic and their imagination to build a replica of a traditional oval house. To create the desired Earth color of Crayola Model Magic, rub color from a Crayola Multicultural Marker into it and knead. Continue adding color several times to achieve the perfect shade.
Sculpt the Model Magic into a rounded dwelling. Leave an opening for a door. Before the modeling compound becomes firm, press the sticks (or use wood scraps) into the walls of the house. Air-dry for 24 hours.
To create the roof, ask an adult to cut a cardboard oval larger than the circumference of your house. Choose more cardboard on which to set your house.
Cover the art area with newspaper. Use Crayola Washable Kid's Paint to make the roof look like it is made of plants. Paint the cardboard base a natural shade using a Crayola Paint Brush. Air-dry the cardboard flat.
Cut slits around the edges of the roof to resemble leaves. Attach the roof to the top of the house with Crayola School Glue. Glue the home to the base cardboard. Air-dry before displaying.
