Secrets of Snow | Day 1

SECRETS OF SNOW
A Week of Snow Discovery for You and Your Little Explorer

For the first day of our Secrets of Snow Week, we are going to have some snow vocabulary. Giving your child vocabulary words provides a foundation for more in depth lessons and activities in your homeschool snow or winter unit. You can use this time to practice memorizing the words with flash cards or writing their meanings in their journals. Getting creative with color coding, charts, or illustrations is a plus too. Apply, add, or subtract from this list however you see fit 🙂


MAIN VOCABULARY

precipitation – forms of water (rain, snow, sleet, hail, etc…) that fall from the sky

BONUS VOCABLUARY

icicle – a spike of ice formed by the freezing of dripping water
