1st Grade: Snowflakes

The 1st grade students learned all about snowflakes. We discussed the process of rain freezing to create snowflakes. They also learned that there are not two snowflakes that are exactly the same. Students also learned that snowflakes have RADIAL BALANCE which is creating the same line/design around the entire snowflake. Students were able to create radial balance in each snowflake they created. Students were able to add VARIETY to their art by creating different sizes of snowflakes. Finally students learned what the COOL COLORS are and brainstormed different things that reminded them of the cool colors.


  1. I love these. I was wondering how you did the snowflakes, what materials? Thanks!

  2. We used sharpie for snowflakes then colored with washable markers, then when you paint over marker they bleed into watercolor!
