Let It Snow!
In this let it snow activity, students, with a partner, read and discuss nine questions about sports to start a conversation and then fill in ten blanks in ten sentences associated with snow phrases.
Learning With Technology & Literature: "The Jacket I Wear in the Snow"
Learners create an illustration of what they would wear in the snow after listening to the book "The Jacket I Wear in the Snow." They answer discussion questions, view drawings on the teacher's Paint website, and draw a picture using computer drawing software.
Volcanoes!: The Dangers of Snow and Ice
Students observe a demonstration of how melting snow and ice can contribute to mudflows. They then observea list of continents with the number of snow and ice covered mountains on each continent and discuss. They then label a group of volcanoes on a blank map and plot a volcano and its snowline including its approximate latitude.
Snow Cover by Latitude
Learners create graphs showing the amount of snow coverage at various points of latitude and compare graphs.
Trends of Snow Cover and Temperature in Alaska
Students gather historical snow cover and temperature data from the MY NASA DATA Web site. They compare this data to data gathered using ground measurements from the ALISON Web site for Shageluk Lake. They graph both sets of data and look for trends or coorelations.
Students listen to poems to explain how poets use words to paint pictures. They use hands-on materials to practice using similies and figurative language to write a poem about snow.
Color the Snow
Are your teaching in a cold and snowy environment? If so, then try out this fun activity with your class. You mix a variety of colors in large jars to show learners the difference between primary and secondary colors, then let them mix the colors by squirting the snow. This can be done in or outside.
Weather with Pink Snow and Other Weird Weather
Third graders explore different kinds of weather. In this weather lesson, 3rd graders discover the different ways humans protect themselves from weather. Students read the book Pink Snow and Other Weird Weather by Jennifer Dussling. After reading students make their own weather charts and discuss what to wear during different types of weather.
In this math equations worksheet, students solve 8 word problems involving snow, fractions, degrees and various types of measurements.
Snow Falling on Cedars Quiz
In this online interactive reading comprehension worksheet, learners respond to 25 multiple choice questions about David Guterson's Snow Falling on Cedars. Students may submit their answers to be scored.
In the Forecast, a Flurry of Concerns about Snow
Young scholars consider the effects of climate change on snowfall and how a lack of data in snowfall collection impair climate change research. They, in groups, investigate different effects of snowfall and make recommendations to lobbyists.
Up to Our Nose in Snow
Students brainstorm for a KWL chart about snow. They feel inside a bag with snow and describe it using their senses. They capture snowflakes onto dark felt and observe them with a magnifying glass. They read measurement books and create snowflakes.
Snow Goggles And Limiting Sunlight
Learners investigate the effects of light radiation on the human eyes. They construct a pair of snow goggles that are used to see how a filter can protect the eyes from radiation. Then students explain how the scientific method can be used to help solve different problems.
Students explore snow. In this forms of water instructional activity, students read a story about snow, identify the types of snow found in Alaska, and learn Inuit words for snow. The instructional activity calls for an Intuit Elder to visit the classroom as a guest speaker.
Make it Snow
Sixth graders investigate the art, geometry and literary expression inspired by snow. They study literature about snow, view images and experiment to examine the qualities of snow.
Eighth graders work in small groups to design and build a snow remover while looking at a snow design brief. They combine 2 or more simple machines to form a compound machine following the design brief in order to meet the required elements of the snow remover machine.
Let it Snow!
Students participate in various activities in the snow to determine how snow affects our lives, what we wear in the snow, and what activities we can enjoy in the snow. Lesson includes many resource links.
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. They analyze the data for each map and corresponding text file to determine an estimate of snow cover for each continent.
Trends of Snow Cover and Temperature in Alaska
High schoolers compare NASA satellite data observations with student surface measurements of snow cover and temperature. They practice data collection, data correlations, and making scientific predictions.
Great Lakes Snow Analysis Collaborative Network
Students interpret data on snow cover and analyze trend patterns. For this snow lesson students compare data and locate their school's GPS coordinates.
