Geometric Snowflakes

We set up a pattern block provocation that encouraged children to consider whether they could create snowflakes. 

This activity was inspired by much discussion about snowflakes as a result of the recent snowfall we've had locally. 

After some research we were able to find microscopic photos of snowflakes depicting their six points and beautiful patterns. 

We examined the photos and encouraged the children to consider this information when working at the centre. We were amazed by what the children created!

Hopefully the predicted snow for this upcoming week will give us more inspiration for creation!
