With winter on the way learning about snowflakes can be so much fun.
If you don't live where it snows learning about snowflakes can be all the more fun.
Have a SNOW DAY!! or a SNOW WEEK!
The literature available is outstanding and YouTube has wonderful videos available.
Be sure to check out my Pinterest Board for some fantastic ideas on creating a fun filled day for your class.
Let's begin with informational text. There is a single page and a mini book.
They explain and define snowflakes as well as share how a snowflake is born.
To follow up the study there is a true/false page.
In terms of recall there is a cause and effect page, a sequencing activity about how snowflakes form and a detail page for recall.
Yes, word work and vocabulary are added.
Vocabulary is key to understanding and why not add a little word work with the vocabulary.
Finally the children will enjoy writing about all the details and facts they gathered.
There is also opinion writing and a snowy day class book where kiddos can share what they like to do in the snow or what they would do in the snow on a SNOW DAY!
I have also included a count and graph page and a Snowflake Bentley sensory page.
