Geometric Snowflakes

After reading the book "Snow" we discussed snowflakes as a group. 

The children were interested in discussing what snowflakes look like. We used the illustrations in the book as a guide; snowflakes are made of shapes, are symmetrical, and have 6 points. 

We placed paper pattern blocks at a table and invited the children to make their own snowflakes. 

Their work was mathematically stunning!
