Make a Snowflake Display
Classroom Displays group member Natalie was having a difficult day in her library so she abandoned her plans and made snowflakes with her students instead. Natalie used instructions from another well known site but if she had searched the Classroom Displays group she would have found this really useful tutorial for the same design from another member, Liz. These are her instructions which are shown here under their Creative Commons Attribution License and are also available on Flickr
I made these snowflakes myself from LizMarie’s tutorial with a year 3 class a few years ago and they found the instructions very easy to follow. The effect is quite impressive, fits well with the Year 3 pattern making thread, and it is generally great fun!
You can see Natalie’s students are quite a bit older and they obviously enjoyed themselves too!
