When I taught high school sculpture I had students do snow sculpture as a
homework assignment. They were to go outside, collect enough snow to make a
snowball, come inside, make the sculpture (something other than a basic form),
and then freeze it in the freezer overnight. They usually brought them in to
show me in tupperware or rubbermaid during homeroom the next morning (class
wasn't until afternoon and we didn't want them melting in the lockers). They
held up fine that way. I always gave a warning about not throwing them on the
bus on the way to school or they'd have double detentions (from the bus driver
and me).
I'm teaching elementary now, with lots of snow outside, so I'm going to try
Ellyn's idea of bringing the snow inside too. Sound's like a blast!
