As part of our unit of study around nonfiction, we read an amazing biography the other day called Snowflake Bentley. Snowflake Bentley is the story of Wilson Bentley, a farmer born in 1865 in Jericho, Vermont. Bentley loved snowflakes more than anything else in the world and used a special microscope/camera to capture images of snowflakes and document their great beauty and variety. The story was a great example of one of our class mottos: Never give up! In first/second grade we also worked very hard to create our own very complicated snowflakes out of paper to decorate our classroom. We also watched a slideshow of some of Bentley’s snowflake photos, which you can see here.
