Have you ever done a lesson on snowflakes with your students? A hands-on, inquiry based lesson? At our last district Kindergarten meeting, I shared some ideas I read about in the December 2009 issue of Science & Children magazine and added some of my own!
My students will be learning about snowflakes for at least 2 weeks beginning when we return to school on Monday! I have lots of ideas planned and have typed them all up into a document that includes a LWS planning sheet, the 5E model grid, and a list of other ideas for using snowflakes in your classroom. I have it posted for sale on my Kristen’s Kindergarten Store blog. At this point I am only able to send paper copies (my desktop computer crashed…bummer) and the cost is $10.00 plus $2.00 shipping. For more information, you can click the link above! 🙂

Thanks again for your incredible ideas about using snowflakes! I have a question to ask you-did you have on your web site last year a pattern block snowflake(the kids design a snowflake using white paper and then put the design on blue paper with the description below about how many pattern blocks were used to make the desgn???? Then the design was outlined with glitter glue. If you have time to reply, I would appreciate it! Thanks so much!
I was able to recover the files, so I can now send them by e-mail.
I feel privilidged to have had the opportunity to view your presentation prior to the HASTI conference.
It was full of wonderful ideas! Thank you for inspiring me today! The weather here has also been inspirational for a snow study!
I too would be interested in the pattern block snowflake if you have it. Otherwise I will just see what the kids come up with! Thanks!
