Student Instructions

Watch the videos. Take photos of snowflakes, up close, showing details. This will take some practice. Place each photo on its own slide to make a snowflake journal. Use label to describe the features of the snowflake. Record the shapes, angles, points, lines, rays, prisms and other characteristics you see. How many points are on the flakes? Colors? Does it look three dimensional or two dimensional?
