Taken from Chapter 7: Arctic Homes In the past, the Inuit who live in the Arctic used igloos as their winter home. Igloos are made from bricks of snow. Today, igloos are used only as a temporary shelter during hunting trips. People do not live in them anymore. Arctic residents now live in houses. Their homes are raised above the ground because the soil is frozen all year long. If the homes were built right on the ground, the heat from the floor would thaw the frozen soil, and the houses would sink. In the winter, some people build a snow tunnel outside their home to keep out the icy wind.Review:
The many types of homes around the world are explained in clear text with photographs that are helpful. Students who live in Canada will be surprised and interested to see the many different types of homes found around the world -- School Librarians' Book Reviews, Hamilton-Wentworth Roman Catholic Separate School Board, ON, Feb. 1997
