If you have snow, you have snowflakes and snowflake science is the perfect addition to your winter lessons. We were checking out YouTube the other day and found some great snowflake science youTube videos that my son and I really enjoyed and think you will too. Plus we all learned something new with our seasonal science and STEM explorations..
FUN SNOWFLAKE SCIENCE YOUTUBE VIDEOS FOR KIDS
If you don’t have the opportunity to observe your own snowflakes, you can totally learn all about them through these short videos perfect for kids! Snowflakes are truly one of nature’s wonders, and they are fleeting.
These snowflake science youTube videos give you an awesome chance to see snowflakes up close, learn how they form, and whether or not all snowflakes are truly unique and one of a kind.
We watched each of these videos together, and I found them appropriate for my 7 year old son to enjoy. In the third video down, they do use the phrase shut up once and say “cheesy” a couple times, but overall I found it an engaging video.
You can also try out your own snowflake science activities at home. You will learn that snowflakes are really ice crystals. The last video I included is about making your own ice crystals.
However, we have a two snowflake crystal growing activities using both the classic borax solution and a salt solution. Both are easy to do at home or in the classroom. Each one has their advantages and disadvantages for kids!
