Give each child some dough and challenge them to roll as many snowballs as they can, making balls of different sizes. Demonstrate rolling a “snowball” with your hands.
Challenge the children to begin with the largest snowballs they have made and see how high they can stack them to create a tall snow person.
When their snowperson topples over, have the child count how many snowballs they were able to stack before it fell and write that number down. Create a bar graph of everyone’s records.
Invite the children to try to adjust their snow person's snowball sizes and see if they can make a snow person even taller than the last. Suggest that a wider or narrower base may sway their results.
