We talked about rotational symmetry in snowflakes, and how they have six spines, reminding us of a hexagon. We also learned that each snow crystal starts with a minute speck of dust, and that crystals stick to it as it travels, creating a snowflake. So then it was time to make our own snowflakes! Children used a variety of materials and ways to make a snowflake:
The children explored foil and paint this week to make snow scenes as well--they will hanging outside the classroom soon, so please stop by to see them!
