Put a STEAM twist on D.I.Y. winter classroom décor!

  • Snow Shapes: Did you know that every snowflake has six sides because of how the crystals form?! The shapes made from craft sticks are called dendrites! Keep your head in the clouds and explore the process of how snowflakes form in them.
  • Fun-Shaped Flurries: No two snowflakes are the same — just like your students! Create one-of-a-kind snowflake shapes by embellishing the craft sticks with glitter heart or stars.

When tons of snowflakes form and start to fall from the clouds, a blizzard occurs! Can your students think of the differences between a blizzard and a regular snowstorm? Find out the scientific explanation behind this weather phenomenon with Jessi and Squeaks!
