This winter we had a theme of snow globes! We made snow globe cards for our Holiday Card Exchange. The third grade team decided to do a writing activity that students would imagine themselves in a snow globe! We watched some animated videos of what some snow globes could look like and what could be in a snow globe. We then brainstormed what life would be like in a snow globe, what we would do, what it would look like, who would be with us and how we got into a snow globe!
The students loved this assignment! Then, of course, we had to do a craft to go with our writing! We found a delightful craft where we turn kids pictures into a snow globe! Students had to dress warm, but in Arizona it is hard to dress warm when it is still 80 degrees outside!
Watch the animoto video of our craft. Parents, be looking for these coming home in January! I am sure you will be just as excited to read these papers as you are to see the cute crafts!
