Do You Want to Build a Snowman?
This activity is perfect for helping students develop problem solving strategies, logical thinking skills, and perseverance! It’s also great as a team-building, collaborative activity.
Three friends each brought items for decorating their snowman.
One of the friends rummaged through his closet and brought back three different types of HEAD GEAR for the Snowman: a Top Hat, a Beanie, and a Crown.
Another friend searched through his kitchen and found three potential items for the Snowman’s NOSE: a Carrot, a Cherry, and a Cookie.
The last of the friends dug through her grandpa’s dresser and returned with three possible items for the Snowman’s TORSO: some Buttons, a Scarf, and a Bowtie.
How many different ways can they dress their snowman up?
Arrange and re-arrange the “Snowman Attribute Cards” to create as many distinct looks for your Snowman as possible! Use the recording sheet (with easy-to-draw “attribute symbols”) to keep track of all the possibilities.
There truly are “snow” many combinations!
