Snow lapbook

This is another lapbook that Rebekah and I made several years ago. It is called "What is Snow?" I am posting it because I've never posted about this one before, and we enjoyed this lapbook a lot! 

We got it as a freebie from "In the Hands of a Child", which is a company that sells lapbooks. You can find it here. They have semi-annual freebies, right now their free lapbook is "Study any Great Painter" - I may have to get that one...

Well, here are our pictures of our lapbook- Enjoy!

Inside front left cover- lots of mini-books
 We liked this lapbook because we learned related vocabulary, about snow classification systems, about different types of frost, why snow looks white, did a snow volume experiment, learned how snow forms, (above)

Right side- showing mini-books and clipart...
... what are blizzard conditions, had a snowflake collection experiment, made a true/flase booklet, how frozen snow is made, who was Robert Hooke, and various little known facts. (above)
Showing open snow crystals and "Ways that nature tells us it
will be a long, severe winter" mini-book
 Here is one: "The greatest snowfall in the United States was in Silver City, Colorado. On April 14-15, 1921 the city received at least 76 inches (195 cm) of snowfall!" WOW- that is taller than me!  I thought maybe it would have been in Montana or Minnesota! (shown in photo 2, above)

It was a very interesting lapbook, and one that we look back to and read each winter. I learn as much as the kids do, I think! I like the freebie project packs, because all of the information is included, and I don't need to do any research- it is all put together. Hands of A Child also has related lapbooks about "Katy and the Big Snow", "Polar Habitats", "Let it Snow", "Sled Dogs" and a "Weather" project pack. Check them out here:
