This Snowflake Bentley book companion is jam-packed with over 30 activities to accompany the book and learn about snow science. You will find everything you need in this unit to last the entire winter!


  • with a whole class
  • with small groups
  • n a center, early finishers
  • for independent study.

For younger students, I would recommend it as a read-aloud. No matter which grade level you teach, there are plenty of activities for you to choose from and allow you to differentiate according to your students' needs.

You will find activities to support the text, but also activities about snowflakes, the snow cycle, and snow science. There is enough for a month of activities, but each activity is independent, so you can pick and choose what works best for your students. 

This Snowflake Bentley book companion unit is packed with resources! Be sure to check out the preview for a more comprehensive view of what is included.
