Winter and Snow! Fun activites!

So it’s winter…but don’t let it get you down. If you don’t have a snow day and can’t stay home, enjoy some fun winter activities in the warmth of your classroom. (Grades K – 3)

Remember, you can still make a sock snowman! Fun to decorate with hearts for rosy cheeks. (See my previous post.)

Or try some of these less time intensive activities:

1. Learn about animals that live in the cold. It always amazes me how a penguin or a polar bear can withstand subzero temps! I need a sweater if it gets below 65…of course, I live in southeast Georgia, so I can’t take much cold. 🙂 Check out these PowerPoints (which are also available as part of my Fun Facts About Animals BUNDLE):

2. Experiment – did you know that hot water freezes faster than cold? Most people think that it would be the opposite. Check out this interesting experiment on the Mpemba effect:

3. Play inside. Read a book, do a puzzle…or do these snow activities for fun:

4. Learn new words. Here are some vocabulary cards you may love for winter:

Of course, you may have to consult a groundhog as whether there will be six more weeks of winter weather…

And as always…a freebie for you!
