Looking for a fun, hands-on activity to use with your students? Perfect for the day before vacation or use as a half-day filler activity. Engage students in this cooperative snowflake activity. They won't even realize they are reviewing geometry! Students will review specific polygon names, attributes, and lines of symmetry as they construct a 3D snowflake.

Included in 36-slide PowerPoint presentation:
-8 review questions (with answers on next slide)
-Step-by-step instructions with pictures for snowflake construction
-List of CCSS, objectives, and instructions

Other materials needed (per group of 3):
-6 pieces of computer paper
-Tape and/or Stapler
-1-3 Pairs of Scissors
-1.5’ Piece of Yarn/String
-1 Paperclip
-1 Single Hole Puncher

Each student constructs 2 sections of the snowflake. Each group will combine 6 total segments to create the final product. We love to hang these around the classroom!

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Use geometric shapes, their measures, and their properties to describe objects (e.g., modeling a tree trunk or a human torso as a cylinder).
Make formal geometric constructions with a variety of tools and methods (compass and straightedge, string, reflective devices, paper folding, dynamic geometric software, etc.).
Draw (freehand, with ruler and protractor, and with technology) geometric shapes with given conditions. Focus on constructing triangles from three measures of angles or sides, noticing when the conditions determine a unique triangle, more than one triangle, or no triangle.
Classify two-dimensional figures in a hierarchy based on properties.
Understand that attributes belonging to a category of two-dimensional figures also belong to all subcategories of that category. For example, all rectangles have four right angles and squares are rectangles, so all squares have four right angles.
