Christmas / Winter lesson: hexagonal snowflakes paper cut

This lesson starts with a little scientific introduction on snowflakes and then gives step by step instructions on how to cut beautiful hexagonal paper snowflakes (much better than the doily type you may have seen before!).

There are example templates you can print out to help with differentiation. Students are blown away by what they’ve made and the resulting flakes can be displayed on black sugar paper or hung in the classroom (try darkening the room and using a torch to explore the shadows…).

Perfect for a one-off lesson in science, design or art, or a tutor group session - without too many fiddly resources!
