The tundra wolf is a large, majestic creature that lives in the far north among the tundra and arctic conditions. The tundra wolf is one of the few mammals that can withstand the harsh temperatures of the far north. Tundra wolves are seen in Canada, Russia, Alaska, Finland and other northern European countries. The habitat of the tundra wolf is wooded, has a water source nearby as well as wide open spaces. A diorama of the tundra wolf will contain all of these elements.
Things You'll Need
- Shoe box
- Craft glue
- Construction paper
- Polyester stuffing
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
- Cotton balls
- Plastic tundra wolves and other animals
Line the sides and bottom of the shoe box with white construction paper. Set the box down on its side so that the bottom of the box now becomes the back.
Glue several twigs upright inside the box with hot glue. This will become the floor of the diorama. Place cotton balls on the twigs to represent snow-laden trees.
Place a layer of polyester stuffing along the bottom of the box to represent snow. Place a piece of shiny plastic or blue paper along one end of the box to represent a lake or other water source. Tundra wolves often live close to water.
Glue several cotton balls to the top interior of the box to represent clouds.
Glue several small, plastic tundra wolves to the ground with hot glue. You can also glue other animals, such as deer or squirrels inside the box as well. Tundra wolves routinely eat these animals for survival.
