Product Description

Activities in this packet center around the man, William “Snowflake” Bentley, his story, and

his work – being the first successful photographer of snowflakes!  Thanks to Snowflake,

we have documented proof of what snowflakes look like, how they’re formed, and why they

are so different!

 

While reading the book is a great introduction to this lesson, if it’s not available to you, I

have provided a YouTube QR code link to a great read-aloud of the book.  Does your school

block YouTube?  No problem!  Again, while the book is a great introduction, it’s not completely

necessary!  Just share the biography of Bentley from his website.  It does a great job of introducing children to Bentley!

 

How do I Use This Packet?

There are many ways to use this packet.  For example, you can use it as a single lesson, or as an introduction to center stations for students (math, literary, Makerspace – covers all these!). You can also just post the cards around the room and have students explore!

  Included in this packet are:

*QR codes (labeled and in a separate folder) to easily access:

  *including videos about snow, snowflakes, a slideshow of Bentley’s photographs

  *websites about Bentley, snowflakes

  *links to printable templates for creating paper snowflakes

  *links to pictures/directions for creating paper snowflakes for students to follow

  *links to science experiments:  creating Borax snowflakes (printable version also      included), Creating snow crystals

*QR Code Scavenger Hunt (that can be used with and without YouTube video access)

* Bookmarks (can be used when students complete their scavenger hunt!)
