This is a mixture of an art project I found on Pinterest and a writing activity that i read in a book. Used it with my 3rd graders last year and it was AMAZING! This is a great way to combine art with writing interesting paragraphs.
This is a 4 day project:
Day 1 - Creating the Snowman
Day 2 - Decorating the Snowman
Day 3 - Writing descriptive details
Day 4 - Putting descriptions into sentences and forming a paragraph.
Once the project is done, these will hang in the room or the hallway. Students will be able to read the paragraphs (reading fluency, drawing conclusions) and attempt to find out which snowman goes with each description. It is a fun scavenger hunt activity.
