Did you forget how to make paper snowflakes?  Do you need a quick (under two minutes!) demonstration video to show your students?  If you are like me, you remember how to fold it, but it never turned out pretty like this:

After watching this quick video, I figured out what I was doing wrong.

The key is to cut out bigger pieces!  Aren't these pretty?

Now, how about a couple movement activities to go along with all of your pretty snowflakes?

SNOWFLAKES
(Tune: Mary Had a Little Lamb)

Snowflakes falling gently down.
Whirling round, twirling round.
Slowly falling to the ground.
Landing softly without a sound.

Dramatic Play

Students may pretend to be snowflakes and float slowly through the air.  Soon, Mr. North Wind blows them quickly through the air. Finally, the snowflakes fall silently on the ground.  

Next, the snowflakes are made into a snowman.  The students stand tall and act like snowmen.  The sun shines, and the temperature warms.  The snowmen slowly begin to melt.  It becomes hotter and hotter.  The snowmen become smaller and smaller.  Finally, they all melt into a puddle of water!
