Last winter I had the opportunity to work with our SnowSchool partner, Winter Wildlands Alliance, on creating a video to be part of their SnowSchool at Home curriculum.

In this video, geared towards 3rd-5th graders, I play in the snow and invite students to “warm up” their senses.  Being aware of the sounds of winter open us up to a world of wonder and movement not typically associated with winter.  Animal behavior changes with the temperature drop but if we listen closely we can notice all kinds of life.

What can you hear?  What do you notice?  What do you wonder?  And what does it remind you of?
