“When I consider your heavens,
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which you have set in place,
what is mankind that you are mindful of them,
human beings that you care for them?”
The Grade 6’s have been learning that they are built to be in awe of God’s creation through the snowflake. They heard the story of Wilson Bentley, who desired to take pictures of single snowflakes to see how intricate each one was. He did not give up, and by using critical thinking, he kept on until he was successful.
The students then did a free-write about a time they enjoyed the snow. They were also were given a STEM challenge to create the most unique snowflake using different-sized marshmallows and toothpicks. After that, they created their own snowflakes using a watercolour/oil pastel resist technique. “Even though we might be sick of the snow, we can be reminded of how creative God is and be in awe of His beauty.”
