My first grade students viewed some youtube videos showing real ice crystal images. They had to be convinced they truly were real because they just couldn’t believe a tiny snowflake looked like that up close. So many “oohs!” and “ahhs!”. We printed our radial design snowflakes using cardboard and old marker caps. The next class we read the classic The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats to inspire our mitten collage. Students used colors, shapes, and designs found in the story to create a colorful pattern on their mittens out of paper scraps.

Inspired by this art project at North Art Alert.
