Today Mrs. Duffey's third grade students learned about why snowflakes are white! We gathered information from a video exploration on Mystery Science and learned that the white light from the sun makes snow look white. We also learned that parts of snowflakes are transparent or see through and other parts of the snowflake look white. We then made transparent wax paper into "snow" and made our own snowflakes!
