Snow Facts for Preschoolers
Snow consists of tiny six-sided ice crystals, which form on dust particles inside very cold clouds. The crystals join together to make snowflakes, which become heavy and fall to the earth.
Because snow is frozen water it is useful. Since it melts gradually in the spring, it becomes a steady supply of water to fill rivers and dams.
Snow also provides recreation to people. Many people enjoy snow sports and activities such as ski-ing, snowboarding, sledding etc
However, snow can also be hazardous to people and animals. Snow is difficult to walk through, it makes finding food difficult for animals. When thick snow crashes down a mountain in an avalanche it can cause a lot of damage and kill anyone caught in its path.
In cities and towns, snow on the roads makes driving dangerous.
Creating collages is a good activity for stimulating the development of fine motor skills in children.
They have to manipulate small particles of craft materials and place them carefully on their page.
Working with different materials will also develop their tactile senses.
Like many other art projects, collage also allows them to be creative and may have a soothing effect on the emotions.
