Ice Age Movie Activities

Ice Age Movie Activities thumbnail
You can provide simple Ice Age activities to your students.

If you are teaching students about the Ice Age, it can be fun to allow them to watch the Ice Age movies as a supplement. While watching the movies, students can make hands-on crafts and activities related to them. This can keep visual or kinesthetic learners occupied while you teach them about the animals, plant life and climate of the Ice Age.

  1. Ice Age Diorama

    • Students can create an Ice Age diorama that resembles the Ice Age movie. Each student will need a shoe box, which they can paint inside to look like a snow or ice-covered landscape. They can press air-drying into the bottom, then paint it with white acrylic paint to resemble snow. Then they can fill the Ice Age diorama with plastic Ice Age creatures, such as mammoths, saber toothed tigers and cave men to complete the look.

    Saber Toothed Mask

    • The saber toothed tiger in the Ice Age movie is one of the most exciting characters. Students can create a sabertoothed mask to resemble the one in the Ice Age movie out of paper mache. Each student will need an inflated and tied balloon. They should tape two paper tubes onto one side of the balloon. Combine flour and water in a bowl in a 2 to 1 ratio for the paper mache paste. Students should dip strips of newspaper or newsprint into the paste, then drape them over half of the balloon vertically, covering the balloon and the paper tubes. Once dry, they can pop the balloon and cut two eye holes above the paper tubes, then paint the entire structure with acrylic paint.

    Cave Man Spear

    • The cave men in the Ice Age movies are strong and carry primitive weapons such as spears. Students can create a spear similar to that in the Ice Age movie out of a long paper tube and cardboard. Each student will cut out a 6-inch triangle out of cardboard, then will attach it to the end of the paper tube by wrapping yarn around it. They can paint the finished spear using acrylic paint.
