Owl Moon, Snowflake Bentley, and All You Need for a Snowman

We began our project by reading Owl Moon by Jane Yolen. We also read Snowflake Bentley by Jacqueline Briggs Martin to learn about snowflakes and the man that devoted his life to learning all he could about them. Finally we read All You Need for a Snowman by Alice Schertle. We live in California so we do not have much experience with snow.

Then we made a list of things that are a part of winter. Using our list we created poems about winter. Then we used Kid Pix to draw a picture of one thing from our poems. Finally we imported our pictures into Word so we could use our pictures as a watermark behind our poems. Here are some examples of our work.
