Learning About Snow
Snow if a fascinating thing. If you live where it snows I am sure it can be a nuisance and something to dread each year. It is very cold, it messes up your yard and takes a long time to get ready to leave in the mornings!
Now, if you live in Florida where it is hot 10 months out of the year, you may long for the snow. Our kids have always dreamt of going to see snow, to play in it with snowball fights and building snowmen.
No matter where you live and if you see snow or not, it is a great thing to learn about during the winter months. Read on for free snow printables, worksheets, unit studies and fun activities that will help you teach about snow in your homeschool.
