Using the idea behind Snowmen at Night, by Caralyn Buehner, I've created an activity that my students love every year.
Students build a snowman. (snowman parts included)
They write descriptions about their snowman and then play a Guess Who? game as a class to see if other students can guess whose snowman is whose.
There are ELA and PE activities for students to work on with their snowman.
After their SNOWMAN DAY, I have students leave their snowmen on their desks. After school, I take their snowmen and hide them. The next day, students are disappointed that their snowmen are missing. I have them make a WANTED poster and we hang them up.
The next morning, I place the snowmen around the classroom for students to find when they walk in. Some are at the computer or in math tubs or at the classroom library. My students are always so excited to find their snowmen!
Last, I have them fill out the FOUND poster telling what they think their snowman did at night.
This is always a favorite winter activity!
If you want more snowmen activities, I have a STEM project with a traveling Snowman activity in my store. Check it out!
