Catching Snowflakes

What can you do with your science class during those snowy days of winter? Catch a few snowflakes! Little ones can catch them on black construction paper and view with a magnifier. Older children can catch them on microscope slides and preserve their shapes with hair spray for viewing under a microscope! Use the activity to introduce crystal formation or a unit on weather or the water cycle.
