Here at Busy Things, we have a selection of winter activities for school. Children can build a snowman, design snowflakes, and write about what happens during winter. There’s even a British weather map that they can use to create a weather forecast, learning about our winter climate during the process.
Children can easily use the paint and symmetry tools to make an amazing snowflake. Did you know that snowflakes have radial symmetry? Meaning that they are symmetrical around their centres. Other things that have radial symmetry are many flowers, bicycle wheels, pumpkins, and oranges.
Children can choose from two different templates and answer the three questions to create a piece of topic work about the winter season. Children can create an image using our drawing tools or choose from the beautiful images in our photo-bank. Busy Things also includes projects for the winter, summer and spring seasons.
Ask your children to label the segments of the circle with the seasons, clockwise in the correct order. Get them to notice and discuss that the seasons progress in a cycle. Ask them to think about what happens to the plants and trees as the seasons progress and how the length of the days change.
