Build a snowman, type a description, and see if a student from another class can re-create your snowman based upon the description you wrote. First, build your snowman using the Virtual Snowman Builder. You can choose any of the parts except for extras. Give your snowman a name and include your own name underneath. Print a copy.
Next, use Stationary Studio to type your description. Use the snowman template under Holidays & Seasons. Have a teacher check, save, then print.
Once finished you will exchange your snowman with a student from another class and see how accurately he/she can re-create it.
