About The SNOW SCIENCE Research Activity
There are many misconceptions and little known facts about snow. Students will take a 10 question quiz, and then follow a three page webquest of reading, pictures, and video to research and analyze their findings. Great, high interest activity for winter!

I developed this lesson for my middle grades science students to research snow. I have used it with my gifted and talented students as well. This lesson can be included as part of a "Rocks and Minerals" unit, or presented as an individual "drop in" lesson. The students can work independently or with a partner.with their partner to create a poster communicating their lab rule.

Included In This Item:
♦ Page 1: 10 Question Quiz (cut paper in half)
♦ Page 2-4: Students will complete guided research of reading, pictures, and video. The QR codes allow students to quickly access the websites with class iPads or students’ personal devices. Website URL's are included on the webquest as a back up.
♦ Page 5: Quiz Answer Key

In this enrichment activity, students will plan their dream snow day. They will pick a date, weather forecast, snow outfit and snow gear, and itinerary for their day! They will share their imaginary day through writing a blog post and creating three instagram posts to share your day.

The unit is designed with a cover page for easy photocopying as a workbook style unit. The unit is easy to print and use in the classroom. All workspace is included in the packet. You must photocopy the packet as single pages, since the students will be cutting directly from their packet. By the end of the project, most pages in the packet will be cut apart and the students will have created a portfolio of work.

I designed this activity to be completed by my middle grades gifted and talented classes. The students worked independently to design their dream snow day! We discussed and brainstormed our favorite snow days in the past. We viewed YouTube videos of exciting snow slides and snow forts and discussed movies and TV shows with epic snow day adventures. The students then worked their way through the 14 page packet to independently complete their “dream snow day”. The packet prompts students to cut the parts from their packet to create a portfolio of work. As the teacher, you may decide to grade the work a portfolio, to ask students to combine all pieces into a poster, or hang only individual components as student work in the classroom.

Included In This Item:♦ Teacher Guide (2 pages)
