Before this snow fall, our local forecasters said that it would be a nice fluffy snow. How did they know that? What are the different categories of snow and what causes these types of snow? What temperature and atmospheric conditions are needed for different categories of snow? (I found five categories and they have very descriptive names that kids will like!)
And if this project turns into an essay on the perfect snow for building a snowman and a photo-journal of snowmen…that is authentic learning!
