Reflection: Modeling Who is Snowflake Bentley? - Section 2: Procedure


Because kindergarten child are emerging artists as well as writers, I like to give a mini lesson about drawing snowflakes.  My drawings are not accurate, but they are better than dots or stars for snow and they show more detail.  I talk with the children about the shapes and the number of sides.  I usually narrow the types to plate, stellar and needle; although if you want more information click on the link I have included in the resources.  My drawings include simple shapes like triangles, hexagons, v's, dots, and lines.  I use a combination to show the children how they can make many different designs with just a few basic shapes.
