Hi friends! I have a fun, hands on winter freebie to share with you!
This is a writing activity that is perfectly designed to integrate science engineering and the Common Core writing standards! You can use this anytime this winter. I think it would be perfect to use for a Fun Friday activity or on a winter day when you want to mix things up a bit for your writing and science block! 🙂
As you know, the week before winter break can be a little chaotic! My kids had a ton of energy and I knew I needed to channel that in a productive way! We made little “snow houses” out of marshmallows and toothpicks and turned it into a science engineering and writing activity! I put my kids into groups of 5 and gave them only 20 minutes to construct their “snow house.” Take a look at some of their awesome creations:
