Catching Snowflakes

Today we tried to catch some snowflakes on our tongues! By the time we got outside the snow had stopped but we did have fun pretending! Our fun little snow catching project turned educational when we sorted snowflakes by size and color. Concepts such as "big and small", "Bigger/larger, smaller", we touched on, as well as counting and count adding, and pattern making. 

Before we could make our fun posters we had to pose for our photos. Tongues out!

While the photos printed, students worked on the sorting activity together. 

Mrs. Burns helped us by printing two copies of our photos and cutting out of tongues from one. Then she helped us by cutting a slit just under our top teeth on our photos. The end product? A 3-D tongue--perfect for snowflake catching!
