Welcome to Edmodo’s Spotlight On Stage, where we take a quick moment to highlight one of our favorite Edmodo Spotlight resources. This time, we’re looking at one of our favorite Winter-themed resources.
Resource Name: A Blizzard of Winter Lessons
Recommended by: Rory Morse
Description: This resource is a fantastic collection of winter-themed lesson plans across all grade levels from Education World, which is a news and educational resource aggregator for teachers and admins.
Here are some of our favorites from this resource:
Search for Ice and Snow: An Online Activity (Grades 4-12)
This activity is all around finding climates and areas on the globe where ice and snow accumulate. Students will search for online resources that can show them visual representations of this data as well as latitude and longitude. Then, they can mark on a world map where the climate is cold enough for ice and snowfall.
How to Study a Snowflake (Grades 3-6)
This worksheet is a great fit for science classrooms and lessons in areas that have plenty of snowfall during winter. It shows students how to capture individual snowflakes and study them, as well as how to measure their own local snowfall level and compare it with the weather forecast.
Paper Snowflake Instructions (Grades K-3)
An elementary school classic, this page shows exactly how to create paper snowflakes by folding and cutting individual pieces of paper. The page includes video instructions and examples to help inspire students with their own snowy creations.
