What do you do on a snow day? Play in the snow!
With the extraordinary amount of snow this year, some snow games just beg to be played. Because the buses were cancelled and many students were unable to come to school, all the grade five students joined together for a little fun outside. Not only was the snow deep, it was also heavy and hard to walk through. Here's one of the games we played:
FLAG IN A SNOW STACK
Tie a white cloth to the end of a short stick or around the bowl of a wooden spoon. Then, give each child a chance to hide it by staking it anywhere within a predetermined set of boundaries. Keep track of how long it takes for the rest of the group to find it. Whoever hid the flag that takes the longest time to spot wins the game.
