Mission Statement

The seasons consist of spring, summer, fall and winter. With each new season the weather is changing. However, each season is unique in its own certain way. You have been assigned as your class's weather investogator. This is a big responsibility. This job means that anytime the weather changes, you have to tell the class what season is occuring. On this particular day, you notice that the weather is very cold and unusual white things are falling from the ground and making the ground turn white. Since you live in South Georgia, you are not used to seeing these white things. You figure out that this white stuff is known as snow, and each particular piece of snow is called a snowflake. Your classmates do not even know what a snowflake is or that each particular one has a different design. Your mission, if you accept, is to cut out a particular design of a snowflake, and in your best words, explain why snowflakes form.


Steps to Include:

1. You will need to visit the snow web site to see how snow is formed. This also will help you in creating your own particular snowflake for everyone to see. (Your teacher can read this information to you)

2.  Using your white sheet of paper, you will cut out your own personal snowflake and glue it to the construction paper provided.

3. Next, you will write a brief description of how your snow flake was created using the web site provided. (If  you need help writing, your teacher will be glad to help.)

4. You will explain to your classmates how snow flakes are formed.

5.  Your beautiful pictures will be published on the Internet.
