Your Mission!

Imagine yourself  in a winter wonderland.  What do you think the weather would be like?  If you guessed the weather might be cold, you guessed right!!  In a winter wonderland there would be snow and ice all around.  Well, what if you could be a snowflake?  Do you know that no snowflake is the same?  That's right, every single snowflake that falls down is different.  Does that remind you of anything?  If it does, that is because no one person is the same.  There is no one in the world just like you, that makes you unique,  just like a snowflake!  In this activity you will be able to make your very own snowflake after imagining your very own winter wonderland.

snowball
1.  The first thing you should do is picture yourself in a winter wonderland.  Think of everything that would be around you.  What would you want in your winter wonderland?

2.  The second thing you need to do is draw a picture of what you are imagining in your head.  Make sure you include everything you want in your picture!

3.  Once you are done drawing your very own winter wonderland, you are going to visit a winter site.  Here you can make your very own snowflake.  Remember, this is your very own snowflake, since every snowflake is different.
