Snowflakes are amazing!

Third grade students spent January learning about snowflakes. We learned all about Wilson 'Snowflake' Bentley, who first photographed snowflakes and eventually published a book with his beautiful photographs. We learned that snowflakes are always six-sided, and made our own snowflakes to decorate the library. Students also learned about determination and perseverance because Wilson Bentley was not able to accurately photograph and study snowflakes right away, it took him many years to perfect his technique.
