After reading Snowflake Bentley, we did further fact finding using a variety of resources. Students read the MyOn eBook Flakes and Flurries: A Book About Snow.
We watched the formation of snowflakes under the microscope.
And we discovered even more from the BrainPOP video Snowflakes.
After gathering background from all of our sources, 3rd graders brainstormed a list of all the facts they had gathered on a Padlet wall.
Using the Snow Creator app, students were able to create six sided unique snowflakes.
Once hearing that no two snowflakes are alike, these two students wanted to see if they could challenge that assertion! Verrrrrrrrry close!!!
