Product Description

Here’s a perfect January and winter STEM Challenge to celebrate all things snow in your classroom. Build a snowflake!

Note: This challenge is available in a money-saving bundle.

This challenge is to build a model of a snowflake using various supplies. Students must work to make the shape symmetrical, beautiful, and detailed. I also added the requirement that the final product should be a stand-alone model so they could be hung. We also added a twist to this design by having students use a budget and purchase the materials needed. The challenge begins with a discussion of how snowflakes form and about their many characteristics! Add this STEM task to your winter studies! What a fun way to extend your learning about snow, winter weather events, and cover some science standards!

You will need supplies in addition to this package. This includes white pipe cleaners, cotton swabs, craft sticks, toothpicks, decorative items, white glue, and calculators.

The package specifically includes:

  • over, teacher background
  • Materials and preparation page
  • 5 pages of teacher directions
  • Constraints list
  • 4 pages of photographs
  • Lab sheet
  • Cost planning sheet for students (in 2 versions)
  • Extra page of information about the science behind snowflakes
  • Scoring rubric
  • Terms of Use

Also included is a file with all forms in an editable format! Student answer sheets are not included, but samples from student work are included in the teacher direction pages. The page count listed for this package includes everything.

This challenge will need 1-2 class sessions to complete.

This is a perfect challenge to accompany these:
