Primary 1A Snow Day Challenges

Good morning everyone.  I have a few challenges for you to try, don’t worry about doing everything, I’ll be delighted if you even manage to do one of the things from the list.


  • Could you try to make a Rainforest Animal in the snow and take a picture to show the class? Or a spaceship, linking to our new IDL topic Space.
  • Can you count how many snowmen you see out and about today?
  • Draw a snowy picture to share with the class.
  • Write a story about what you have been doing on your snow days or you could make it a snowy adventure story.
  • Feed the birds outside (if it’s safe to do so) and take some pictures of the birds you have in your garden. Can you find the names of the different birds using bird books or the internet?
  • Create some snow art – add a couple drops of food colouring to a squirt bottle or squirt gun and then head outside in the snow to ‘paint’ the snow. Take a picture of the artwork you’ve created to share with us.

I can’t wait to hear about the different things you’ve been doing during your snow days. Have fun everyone and most importantly remember to stay safe and warm.
