BRIEF OUTLINE: Students draw snowmen based off the clues you read them, then have to find them.

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. After talking about Christmas and introducing things about Christmas where you are from, introduce some of the shapes and vocabulary words they may not know in the activity (such as 'top hat' and 'bow tie').
  2. Pass out the snowman drawing paper. Tell the students not to write their names on the paper.
  3. Start reading the clues to the students to draw a snowman based on what you are reading. At the same time you are reading the clues, draw a snowman on the board as an example and have the JTE draw one too. You should have two different versions of snowmen so no one gets confused.
  4. Once all the clues are read, collect half the room's papers and the other half's papers. DO NOT mix the halves together. Shuffle one half of the papers and pass them out to the other half of the room and do the same for the other half. You want the paper to be mixed so no one has their own paper.
  5. Once all the papers are passed out, pass out a copy of the clue paper to the students too. You can go over the clues with the students if you want.
  6. Have the students figure out whose snowman they have. Have them stand up and walk around asking other students, "Is this your snowman?"
  7. Once the students find whose snowman they have, they write the name on the bottom of the paper where it says, "This is ___________ snowman."
  8. Then they come and show you and say, "This is _______________snowman."

 

VARIATIONS:

  • This can also be used as a Halloween lesson (making a pumpkin), a St. Patricks day lesson (making a leprechaun), or Easter (making a bunny). 
    •  

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  •  I usually give bonus points to each student that finds out whose snowman they have.
