“What an engaging way for our young writers to connect images and words! I am going to use this as part of my snowflake unit this week - perfect timing!”
Use this snowflake activity for hands-on learning during the winter season & add scientific, poetic beauty to your room or hallway...all while addressing CCSS! This "Ready To Print" Student Project supports Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in English Language Arts (ELA) for Grades 3, 4 and 5.
Gather and print real snowflake photographs from Google Images. Then, have your students look at their own snowflake to work through each stage of the project. Finish by gluing the snowflakes & similes on colored paper. You could even get simile and snowflake inspiration from the book Snowflake Bentley by Jacqueline Briggs Martin.
These look amazing on display in the hallway or on a classroom bulletin board and sound perfectly poetic! I have received so many compliments - a perfect winter craft.
I have included a Teacher Modeling Guide/Answer Key with each stage of the project, so if similes aren't your thing, you can use mine!
Thank your for your interest and I hope you enjoy this product from Project Hallway!
