When winter storms start rolling in, we all know that could lead to SNOW DAY!! Missing school due to weather can put a halt to learning or even slow down the momentum of a lesson or unit. While it may be snowing outside, it's not snowing in Canvas. So, it might be worth checking out a few wonderful resources that have been publicly shared in Commons just in case you're snowed in.
Amanda Whigham, from Hall County Schools, shared the assignment Snow Day Assignment #1 which finds environmental science in the movies. Complete with thorough prompts and rubric, this could be a great assignment to import and modify (as needed) into any 9th grade (or any high school-level) science class.
If your snow days are dragging on, Sarah Hamby might have the perfect assignment to keep your spirits up. She shared Snow Day 3: SNOWFLAKE FUN in which students can complete an easy snow day math activity by taking a picture in the snow where arms display any type of angle (right angle, acute angle, obtuse angle). How fun is that?! Perfect for elementary school students!
Want a lesson on Arctic Habitats? Deactivated user created a page called "Snow Day Science Lesson" with instructions on how to access BrainPop (3rd party app) for brrr-science fun, complete with link to a video and quiz to share with your homeroom teacher!
Whether you're creating your own snow day activity or leveraging one from Commons, you best check out jmcbee's photo Snowy Day and Dog. It's a great visual addition to any assignment, quiz or lesson for your snowy-day activities.
