Program: Pre-School Story Time
Reader: Kathie Clarke
Book Title: various

Activities:
February’s story time was about snow and all the fun you can have in it – sledding, snowmen, snowball fights, snow forts, angels, skating, skiing. The children learned about the boy, born in 1880, who loved snow so much that his mother bought a microscope for him so he could see snowflakes up close. Then his mother bought him a camera with a microscope attached and he began taking pictures of the snowflakes. He became known as “Snowflake Bentley,” and continued photographing flakes all his life. His museum is in Vermont, and his photos can be seen online.

We learned the life cycle of a snowflake, how it starts with a speck of dust, pollen, ash, etc., accumulates moisture as it falls and twirls down through the clouds, forming beautiful flakes. Two elements are needed for snowflakes – a moist cloud and freezing temperature.

What if there is no snow, say, at ski resorts? Snow machines blast out snow, piling it many feet deep.

The class ended with a sparkly snowflake craft, snacks, and playtime.
