Product Description
By Sarah E. Masters
Nonfiction Snowman Project©2011

This is a fun project where students self-select a nonfiction text and create a snowman. While having fun, students are also reviewing what they have learned about nonfiction text features and are sharing what they found most interesting while reading and learning about a topic of interest. An assessment rubric is included to give to students prior to completing the project and to be used to assess their learning. All of the second graders in our building did this project last winter, and their creations wonderfully hung and decorated our entire hallway!

This project was designed to be used with students after they have read a non-fiction text of their choice.

Students have learned about the various features of non-fiction texts (table of contents, index, glossary, boldface words, etc), and they have a working understanding of each.

Parts of this project are a glyph. This includes (see photo):
Placement of arms, number of buttons, positioning of nose, and type of mouth.

Additional parts of the project include (see photo):
Picture It! - Illustrating an interesting fact and writing a caption.
Wow! - Most interesting, surprising, or strange fact.
Now I know... - Three new pieces of information learned from reading
