Your students can learn all about the hoar frost that makes the trees look so cool in the winter.
Use this nonfiction article to read about hoar frost and then students can answer questions while highlighting their evidence.
Then for extension, they can read a poem about Jack Frost and create their own story about Jack Frost.
Connect math and art with a tessellation project that connects to the interlocking ice crystals of hoar frost.
Send the students home with the fun science experiment where they can make their own frost inside!
Lastly, students can create a brochure of hardy plants that will survive frost with the R.A.F.T. research project. Comes complete with scoring rubric. This extension can be connected to Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) 3-LS4-3 and 3-LS4-4.
