This snowman glyph is an excellent activity for reading and following directions, and requires problem solving, communication, and data organization. It has the students coloring or putting different items on a snowman based on information about themselves. Students are to finish the snowman glyph using the eight categories listed below.
1) Head covering
3) Mittens or Gloves
4) Around the Snowman’s Neck
6) Broom or Shovel
At the end of the activity is a completed snowman glyph. Reading the completed glyph and interpreting the information represented is a skill that requires deeper thinking by the student. Students must be able to analyze the information presented in visual form. A glyph such as this one is very appropriate to use in the CCSS data management strand of math. An answer key is included.
Kindergarten teachers can easily adapt this activity since the instructions include pictures.
