Snowflakes! Snowflakes! Snowflakes!

We learned about how snowflakes are formed and where they come from. Be sure to ask your child about what we learned during our 4 Winds workshop. Lots of fun!

This month we are learning about snowflakes! One of the main ideas we will be focusing on is that water can take many forms. The children will be thinking of different forms as well as conducting some experiments that help us to understand how water can change it's form.

Unit Ideas/Concepts:

1. Fallen snow is a collection of crystals stacked with air spaces between them.
2.Snowflakes consist of 1 or more snow crystals that join together to form a snowflake.
3..Snow crystals are part of the group of crystals that are 6 sided. This shape is called a hexagon.
4. Snowflakes have neat designs.
