We practiced drawing six pointed snowflakes by looking at photographs that Bentley took of snow crystals. Then we used foam board to turn our snowflakes into stamps. We used our snowflake prints as ornaments and cards.

First and second grade artists learned all about Vermonter Wilson "Snowflake" Bentley. We read "Snowflake Bentley" by Jacqueline Briggs Martin and admired the beautiful illustrations by printmaker Mary Azarian.
