Peering through the microscope…

What have you seen under your microscope lately?

If you are like me and your snow is long gone (or maybe non-existent), you can still view some snowflakes up close and personal by checking out these sites:

NOAA Photo Library: Studies among the Snow Crystals

Snowflake Photo Gallery

Snowflake Shapes


Curious about how snowflakes form? Watch a video here.

Want to know more about the science of snowflakes or the life of Wilson Bentley? Visit this site for a wealth of information.

Then take this quiz to test your knowledge.


And for fun, you can make your own paper snowflakes or read ones of these books curled up with a cup of hot cocoa… you’ll need it after spending so much time in the snow.  🙂
