Winter is coming! And what better way to get excited for snowy weather than by learning about it with your kids!
Since we don’t get a lot of snow down here in the South, we’re always fascinated by snowflakes.
The few times we see them are basically national events, at least in our family.
So I thought we’d learn a bit more about how snowflakes form, what makes them special, and toss in some other school subjects while we were at it.
We’ve put together a printable snowflakes unit study featuring math, language, writing, and science activities for kids in grades K-2!
Read on to see how to get your copy!

Trust me, this is harder than it looks. But kids will enjoy the challenge!
