The igloo is the small home of the Inuit people or Eskimos living in the Arctic and Alaska. In the past, Inuits started to build their homes with snow because it was hard to find other materials like wood and stone in the Arctic. Though made of snow, the igloo creates a warm interior by trapping body heat. Igloos are usually used as temporary shelter for hunting and fishing.
