Snowmen For All Seasons at Mandalay School

Students create snowmen for all seasons

There was a little mix-up about the seasons at Mandalay Elementary School, but kindergartners came out a little more tech-savvy.


After reading “Snowmen All Year” by Caralyn Buehner, students then discussed the types of activities they do and the type of clothing they wear in the different seasons. STEAM teacher Alexa Del Piano then tasked students with taking this knowledge and creating digital projects that put their snowmen into different seasons.


Each student decided which season his or her snowman would live in, and chose the appropriate background. There was a snow scene for winter, flowers for spring, the beach for summer and a leaf-covered path for fall. Children then drew clothing on their snowmen as well as equipment for appropriate seasonal activities. 


The projects were completed using drawing tools in Seesaw, an elementary learning platform. Ms. Del Piano said that the goal was to help students become more familiar with digital resources on their laptops, while also connecting with their science unit to the four seasons. The project, completed just before the calendar officially rolled over to spring, also promoted creativity and critical thinking.
