2) Mouth

3) Mittens or Gloves

4) Around the Snowman’s Neck

5) Boots

6) Broom or Shovel

7) Buttons

8) Name

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.
