Be the coolest kid on the block when you build this model of the Halley IV Antarctic Research Station!
The Halley IV can be quickly assembled and moved across the Antarctic ice on its adjustable skids and can be connected together to make an entire research community.
Young engineers will build the research station featuring a “hydraulic lift,” adjustable leg skids, and extras to make their model look like the real thing.
This activity comes with ready-to-print templates, loads of reference photos, and written explanations. Students will need a shoe box, blue and white cardstock, glue, craft sticks, and some nuts, bolts and washers to make their research stations.
My 3rd grade GT nonverbal group built completed this project, but my 4th and 5th graders kept telling me how they were getting ripped off. Why didn’t they get to build one? This project can be completed for about 75 cents to $1.50 per student.
