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
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.
