Do you want to make your Science lessons come to life? Then this is the packet for you. This unit includes over 16 hands-on activities that you could use during the winter!

This packet is different from most that you buy on TpT. Instead of giving you centers and activities to print, cut out, and laminate, this packet is full of hands-on activities that you can use with your students. I completed all of these in my first grade class and my students LOVED them. Not to mention, the parents were so excited that we did “so much Science!”

The packet is broken down by picture steps (to help you see what the experiment should look like,) and then I give you a “cheat sheet.” This black and white copy is for you to print out and have on hand when you are completing the experiment in your class. (I have also included approximate time requirements for the activities to give you an idea as to how long they will take to complete.)

I also include “grocery lists” for all of the activities. {How much do I hate when I get home from the grocery store and realize I forgot ONE item!!}

The packet includes graphing activities, recording sheets, mini writing books, anchor chart ideas and resources, crafts, math activities, writing extensions and more!

Activities Include:
Snow Paint (craft)
Measuring Mittens (math activity)
Maple Syrup Snow Candy (edible science activity)
Snow Dough (activity)
Ice with Salt (science experiment- with scientific explanation)
How Fast Does Ice Melt? (science experiment- with scientific explanation)
Animal Tracks (science whole group activity)
Edible Pine Trees (edible project)
Making Snow (science experiment)
Winter Craft (craft)
Bird Feeders (science activity)
Hibernation Activity (science activity)
Measuring Snowmen (math activity)
Winter Facts (science activity)
Hot Chocolate Science (science experiment)
Matter Investigation (science activity/experiment)

This packet includes three mini books that you can have your students complete including a nature walk, a hibernation book, and a book that has students track and graph the daily temperature.

There are numerous recording pages that teach scientific principles and "experiment observation sheets."

This unit is aligned to the Science TEKS and also to writing and math standards from the Common Core.

Please download the preview to see some more of what is included in this unit!

I truly hope that you enjoy this pack and that you have FUN with these experiments, crafts, and activities!
