- 3 cups of baking soda
- 1/2 cup of white hair conditioner
Mix the two ingredients together until you reach a snow-like texture. If it’s too wet, then add more baking soda until the desired texture is reached.
Following directions. Give your students the directions for making the snow. If they don’t follow the directions they will quickly see this because the snow will not turn out right.
Language expansion/descriptive language + auditory comprehension at the same time. Once the snow is made you can have students build a scene and describe it. Some that I love to do is to have a student build a scene in the snow and then take a picture of it. Then, they remove the scene and describe it to another student while the other student attempts to recreate the scene based on the description. This is similar to the process of a barrier game and it’s really been a hit.
Sensory bins. This snow is the perfect background or filler for a sensory bin. Hide artic cards or build a scene in the snow.
Wh-questions. What does the snow feel like? Look like? Smell like?
