This creative website allows you to create a personalized snowflake (perfect for winter). It is the virtual version of construction paper and safety scissors snowflakes minus all the mess. Some visual and mechanical dexterity is still necessary, but not nearly as much as complex paper snowflakes require.
In the ClassroomThis site would work well in an elementary art class as a winter project or when teaching about the seasons in primary grades. All of the saved snowflakes are assigned an ID number. The flakes can be downloaded as jpeg files, EPS files (to be manipulated in your own graphics programs), or emailed to you. Use downloaded images to create a winter "big book" along with winter poems by your young students. Use this site in upper grades in both graphic design classes as part of a winter webpage project or in a geometry lesson on angles or reflections. The website could be previewed on the interactive whiteboard or projector. Then students can create their own on laptops or in the computer lab. What an entertaining way to teach symmetry to younger students!
