Snowflakes Are Beautiful – round up of posts

Snowflakes and winter go together in our minds but if you live in central Texas, they don’t often truly happen together. Today is the exception and it has been lovely! While we are in the midst of winter, I thought I would share a few ideas of books and activities with you. Here is a peek at what our yard looks like this evening.

The Homeschool Review Crew has a blogging/social media challenge this week on snowflakes. There have been a number of activities and books we have used over the years to discuss the beauty of snow. Here are a few posts to take a look at if you are looking for ideas.

Snow Experiments – why snow looks white

FIAR: Katy and The Big Snow, part 1 and part 2 – unit study

Snowflake Baby – creative writing

January Book Basket (2014) – books on snow and winter

Painting Crystals – looking at crystals form

FIAR: Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening – unit study

Singing Through December, Part 2 – has several fun activities related to snow

Don’t forget to check out Snowflake Bentley and search online for pictures of snowflakes. The biography of this photographer is interesting and there are several good titles out there, including an excellent picture book on him.

Blessings,
Lori Hooten

    I loved seeing your pics up on social media, what a fun time your daughter had. I didn’t realize you had written so much about snow! 🙂

      Snow is something I love, though I don’t live where we often get more than a few flurries.

    We live in Louisiana, so we rarely get snow either! Last week was fun for my kids. They got to build snowmen, have a snowball fight, and make snow angels!

      The rarity of the event makes it a lot of fun for them. Glad you kids got to enjoy it, too!
