Catch a Falling Flake When it is snowing, catch a snowflake on a piece of black construction paper. Look at it through a magnifying glass. What shape is it? What does that tell you about how cold the air is?
Weather Ideas for elementary students: 1. Play a version of charades. Act out a favorite activity to do in the snow, whether it's making snowmen, making snow angels, having snowball fights, sledding, etc. Have others guess what you're acting out. 2. Cut out a snowflake shape from a piece of paper. If you are with other students, go around and see if you can find another one like yours.
3. Make two columns on the blackboard. In one column, list ways that snow can be good. In the other, list how it can be bad.
