STEAM Project!

Last week we partnered up with Mrs. Marshall's class to do a STEAM activity. The STEAM unit with Mrs. Simonson motivates and excites kids on a whole new academic level! They can't wait for Day 2 because of the learning taking place in the STEAM room!! Mrs. Marshall and I thought it'd be fun to get our two classes together to create a 3D snowflake. We read a story about Snowflake Bentley (the first known photographer of snowflakes) to set the stage and then told the kids they would be making their own snowflake. We talked about how snowflakes are symmetrical and with very little additional instruction (intentional), the kids set off! Before we knew it, the time was up and their snowflakes were very impressive!
