Snowflake Bentley Briggs Martin, Jacqueline


Teaching Ideas:
Using a camera and microscope, students could study and catalog different snowflake formations. (Teachers could check with local high school teachers about borrowing equipment for the project.) Students could also do research to learn more about Wilson Bentley using the web site below. The contrast between the narrative of the story and the more factual sidebars provides an opportunity to study writing styles. Pair this book with Snowflakes in Photographs by W.A. Bentley, a book of Bentley's snowflake photographs. web site:

How much were cows in the early 1900s? how much for 10 of them?
