TIME YOU WILL NEED:
- 15 Minutes
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
- Journal or Paper
- Pencil (for variation, scissors also needed)
- Deep Look video on Snowflakes
Watch the video about how snowflakes form. Draw your own 6-pointed snowflake.
Variation: Cut a circle from a piece of paper (tip: trace a plate or other round object). Fold the circle in half evenly and then into thirds (this can be a bit tricky). Keeping the edges lined up, carefully cut shapes into both the straight and curved edges. Carefully open up your snowflake.
Teacher instructions: Have everyone in your class do the activity. Students can share their snowflakes by holding up to camera or by taking a photo of their drawing/cutout. Is each student-created snowflake unique? Are certain features or patterns repeated?
