What's the Matter with My Snow?
Students collect snow samples around their school. They explore the concepts of density and phase change as well as the math skills of measurement and statistics. Students explore the water cycle through an interactive, down loadable software program.
Snow Globe Family
Kindergartners sequence the parts of a story using a snow globe as a setting. They will listen to Snow Globe Family and retell the parts of the story noting the beginning, the middle, and the end. Then they will make their own snow globes to discuss snow and weather.
Students assemble snow goggle models and discuss how snow goggles change the amount of light shining in their eyes.
Snow Sports: merit badge
In this snow sports instructional activity, learners fill out short answer questions using their workbook about snow sports in order to get a merit badge. Students complete 6 questions total.
Snow: A Phonics Lesson Plan
Learners list rhyming words. In this rhyming lesson plan, students list words that rhyme with snow. Learners choose one pattern to rhyme with and write the rhymes on a snowman cutout.
"Amy Loves the Snow" Guided Reading Lesson
Learners recognize punctuation marks while reading. In this guided reading lesson, students read Amy Loves the Snow, and discuss purposes for using commas. They answer questions about the story and create their own mini-book to reinforce learning.
A Blanket of Snow
Students study the factors affecting permafrost temperature and condition. In this physical science lesson, students observe local places with snow cover and collect temperature data. They create a short video about permafrost.
Eighth graders investigate what object melts snow the fastest. In this earth science lesson, 8th graders explain how light energy can transform to heat energy. They design and conduct an experiment to answer a testable question.
Studying Snow and Ice Changes
Students compare the change in snow and ice over a 10 year period. In this environmental science lesson, students use the live data on the NASA site to study and compare the monthly snow and ice amounts on a map of the entire Earth. They use excel to analyze the averages.
Comparison of Snow Cover on Different Continents
Students use the Live Access Server (LAS) to form maps and a numerical text file of snow cover for each continent on a particular date and analyze the data for each map, corresponding text file to determine an estimate of snow cover for each continent.
This lesson is written just for those of you who live in snowy places. Learners create temporary art in order to understand the creative process. They get outside and paint the snow! The snow or ice can be sculpted first and then painted, or the kids can just get creative. Like chalk art, this snowy activity won't last, but that's the point.
Volume of Snow and Water
Fifth graders identify the volume of snow as greater than the volume of ice. They calculate the volume ratio of snow: water. They discuss the properties of snow and liquid water that cause changes in volume and understand that 1 mililiter of water weighs 1 gram.
Get to Know Snow!
Students learn about snow. In this snow themed lesson, students read a book, make a painting, and observe snow. A math activity timing how long it takes for snow to melt is included.
Students read books, learn about the letter s, and eat snow cones all to learn about snow. In this snow lesson plan, students also make snowflakes and finger paint white snow on blue paper.

Students construct shoebox to simulate the snowy environment where wild animals live. Students write about how animal adaptations help animals survive.
Snow Treasure: Marie McSwigan
Students read and discuss Snow Treasure by Marie McSwigan.
It's a snow day, and two brothers attending schools with different schedules each got a late start to the day. But who had the shorter school day? That's what your class will find out as they apply their knowledge of fractions to this real-world situation. Encourage students to draw pictures or number lines to support their answers. A great context to include as either guided or independent practice when teaching a lesson on comparing fractions.
Snow Goggles And Limiting Sunlight
Students build snow goggles similar to those used by the Inuit people. They create their version of the goggles to improve upon existing designs. Pupils compare the process used to invent snow goggles with that employed by the MESSENGER mission designers. Students discover that the basic principles of using the scientific method for solving problems are the same, regardless of whether the exact solution to the problem is the same.
