I decided to make up a little snowflake matching card activity using some real snowflake photo images I found online. The image I found was in a grid, so I cut and pasted it into a Word document and then copied it and reduced it down so one grid was teeny tiny. I wanted to post a download to this file, but when I posted it a reader informed it that it wouldn't open correctly. I have looked into it but have been unable to correct it. So.......if you are interested in this file please email me at [email protected] and I'll try to email it to you as an attachment.
I have laminated the big grid and took the little teeny grid pictures and cut them out.......
..........then I glued them onto squares of black construction paper as shown below (sorry for poor photo!).
I placed everything on a tray with a big magnifying glass. Children can use the magnifying glass to look at the tiny snowflake on the card and match it to its "mate" on the big grid. I am thinking of also making this into a cut and paste booklet. I'll post that if I get it done. My kiddos LOVE making little booklets and the cutting and pasting is so great for their fine motor skills.
