Snow is fascinating to read about, but buying class sets of books can be quite expensive! This nonfiction text unit on snow may help. It would be a great addition to a nonfiction text study, weather unit, or winter unit.
The book can be printed and bound, copied for a small group/whole group, or projected onto a SMARTboard or other interactive board.
The text is presented in a question/answer format. The following questions are answered within the text:
How is snow made?
Where can snow be found?
Can snow be dangerous?
Why are mountain tops often covered in snow?
Where does snow go when it melts?
Who was Wilson “Snowflake” Bentley?
