Create light, sparkly snowflakes! Decorate a package, trim a tree, or hang them in winter windows. Let it snow!
Invite students to investigate the uniqueness of snowflakes. Why do scientists say that no two are alike? What types of patterns do they see in snowflakes? Share a read aloud with students that is focused on snowflakes, a snowstorm, winter weather, etc. Provide time during the read for students to view and discuss the accompanying illustrations. Then ask students to share with classmates memories they have of winter snows.
In this lesson, students will create their own unique snowflakes. Ask students to cover their work areas with recycled newspapers. Distribute white Crayola Model Magic®. Instruct children to flatten a large chunk of the Model Magic®. Cut out snowflake shapes with large and small cookie cutters. Press the shapes together in layers.
Mini cookie cutters can be pressed into the Model Magic layers. Remove these shapes to create lacy snowflakes.
Form Model Magic characters such as elves to decorate the snowflakes.
Decorate with Crayola Super Sparkle Glitter Glue and sparkly chenille sticks. Air-dry for at least 24 hours.
While awaiting the finished product, invite students to write a few sentences about their snowflake. How does it represent their personal experiences with snow? Assist students, as needed, with writing activity.
Display student snowflakes, along with writing, prominently in the classroom.
