Students complete pre reading, writing, post reading activities for the book Footprints in the Snow. In this guided reading lesson plan, students complete writing, go over vocabulary, answer short answer questions, have discussions, and more.
Students complete pre reading, writing, post reading activities for the book Snow on the Hill. In this guided reading lesson plan, students complete writing, go over vocabulary, answer short answer questions, have discussions, and more.
Second graders experiment with a thermometer and water samples of varying temperatures. They examine the effect different colors and different fabrics have on retaining heat. They examine snow samples for water and dirt content. They keep a science journal.
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.
Learners design and conduct an experiment to determine the thermal conductivity of certain materials. In this earth science lesson, students relate how thermal conductivity varies with snow composition. They collect data from their experiment and present their findings in class.
Students investigate physical science by answering water property study questions. In this snowfall instructional activity, students discuss the different types of precipitation around the world and the most common one associated with Alaska. Students conduct an experiment with a snow sample which they use to analyze how much water is in an inch of snow.
Students explore winter adaptations and glare. In this winter weather instructional activity, students discuss the season of winter and how animals and plants adapt to the changing weather. Students discuss the glare off snow and make goggles for their fieldtrip. Students take a fieldtrip to Mt. Seymour to experience winter phenomena in person.
Students write sound poems inspired by works of art they have viewed, create paintings with snow as subject, create zines about their perceptions of winter, and update one of Robert Harris' winter sports illustrations. Four lessons on one page.
Second graders describe and imitate sounds from the natural environment including rain and snow. After listing materials that could be used to make rainsticks, they create their own instruments from cardboard tubes,beans, and sand. To conclude the lesson, 2nd graders create collages of the winter season.
Fifth graders read and analyze the books "Snow White in New York" and "Mufaro's Beautiful Daughter." They analyze the characteristics of the characters in each story, write thoughts of characters in speech bubbles, and write a letter to Snow White's stepmother.
What makes a character good or evil? Young readers discuss the characteristics and actions of good and evil characters in given fairy tales. They then read Snow White and discuss the characters in the story.
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.
Physical science fans find out how supercooled water droplets in the clouds can become crystalline snowflakes. They learn about the categories of snowflakes (plates and columns) and the variables that determine their patterns (temperature and humidity). Sarah Konrad, a glaciologist and one-time Olympic skier, is interviewed. Alternating between graphic animations and actual video footage, the super-cool film is sure to fascinate! Incorporate these science concepts as you discuss the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games.
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.
Students examine the differences between snow and rain. In this precipitation lesson, students measure one inch of rain and snow to calculate the amount of liquid water. Students use a snowfall "conversion" chart to measure how much liquid water is in snow.
A homeschooling family can take advantage of snow days for both fun and educational opportunities.
Students explore how snow helps animals survive in the wild. In this animal science lesson, students review key vocabulary words and discuss types of animal adaptations. Students construct shoebox to simulate the snowy environment where wild animals live. Students write about how animal adaptations help animals survive.
Students look at the properties of snow. In this snow lesson plan, students discuss what they know about snow and what makes snow melt. They come up with ideas to slow the melting process of snow.
Students assemble snow goggle models and discuss how snow goggles change the amount of light shining in their eyes.
Learners explore how temperature and wind contribute to types of weather. In this weather lesson, students observe an experiment in which ice, steam, and an electric fan are manipulated to produce results that simulate how fog and snow occur. Learners write and illustrate a weather book.
