 The holidays are over and winter has settled in. In this issue, we offer some sites for learning about and enjoying winter.


Fiction: Snowmen Tales
This site has fictional stories listed by grade level with reading comprehension questions. The stories can be printed for classroom use.


Teaching Tips & Strategies-WINTER
The winter solstice marks the beginning of winter in the Northern Hemisphere. It is the time when the earth is tilted on its axis in such a way that the North Pole is slanted away from the sun, giving us less sunlight. On the first day of winter (either December 21st or 22nd) we experience the longest day of the year. From then on, the days begin to get longer


Blizzard Attack!
Roger Evans, an Iowa Meterologist, has developed this activity for students in grades 7 to 12.
A teacher's guide is included.



Snowtastic Snow
Hi! Welcome to Snowtastic Snow. In our site you will find a lot of different information about snow and ice. You can also go to our game page for puzzles, mazes, and even quizzes! We hope you enjoy our site.


Iditarod 2002
