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 hotter!

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 snowstorm in a jar experiment is perfect for any classroom! It's is perfect for going along with seasons activities or snow activities!

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.This snowstorm in a jar experiment is perfect for any classroom! It's is perfect for going along with seasons activities or snow activities!

I included everything for the teacher including:

  • materials
  • steps
  • questions to ask
  • an explanation of how it works

This snowstorm in a jar experiment is loved by students! It's perfect for your classroom as you explore snow activities or season activities for kindergarten or first graders!
