It's Snowing in Here! A Full Day of Snowflake Themed Fun

Today's theme ended up being snowflakes.

 It hadn't really started out that way but I just went with it.

We made snowflakes using coffee filters.

 We made giant snowflakes using white paper lunch sacks.

We played with pattern blocks to make snowflakes.  We used protractors and markers to measure snowflake angles.  There was a lot of discussion about shapes, sizes, symmetry, and angles throughout the day.

We remembered last year's unit on snowflakes and all of Snowflake Bentley's observations as well as some fun computer games we played with snowflakes last year.

All in all it's definitely looking like a snowstorm has hit this house.

We made snowflake window clings using templates, 3-D glittered fabric paint, and cling wrap.
