Do You Want to Build a Snowman?

I always love doing this lesson with my students.  Even though it's messy and takes time the kids absolutely love it!

We first write the steps on "How to Build a Snowman."  Once completed I tell them I have a recipe they're going to follow to make their very own.

First, we read through my steps.  Then I reread them and the students used a highlighter to highlight the sequencing words.

Working in groups, students followed my directions.  Mixing powdered soap, adding water SLOWLY, and stirring until they got a doughy consistency.    Finally, they each made a snowman and decorated them once dry.

Here they are.
