Bringing science to life in hands-on ways is so important for our little learners. When it comes to teaching about weather and seasons, my students are always glued. I think that’s mostly because we don’t have all types of weather where we live. It’s mostly hot and more hot! Because of this, we do a lot recreate things visual–to show them what things look like or how it works. Making a snowstorm in the classroom is one of those things.
This is one of the easiest activities I have done. I hesitate to call it an experiment because there truly isn’t much you are testing, but it’s definitely a hands-on experience and paints a beautiful picture of a snowstorm! The supplies are easy prep–just grab them while you are at the grocery store next time! Other things you probably have in your art cabinet at school already!
I included everything for the teacher including materials, steps, questions to ask, and an explanation of how it works!
I also included student directions here and a science journal page!
You can sang everything in this FREEBIE HERE!

I hope you enjoy this snowstorm activity in your classroom!
