Drawing your own Snowman☃️🎲

Students can create their own snowmen. This activity takes inspiration from a Halloween Game: create your monster using a die to create the different parts of a monster.

I tried this activity with my 6th graders, and they enjoyed it, but you can use it at any grade level for elementary kids to learn simple and new English words. This activity can be done as a whole class, in groups, and individually, depending on how you want to structure the lesson. The students can be as creative as they want on how they structure the different types of items for their snowman.

The Lesson plan:
We did it as a whole class for my class, so students could be at the same pace and practice saying the words beforehand. The students were in groups and rotated one big piece of paper each time we rolled the die, so each student had a chance to draw. One group member would come to the front of the class and roll the die. Once the student rolled a die, they would have to draw that item on their snowman corresponding to the number they landed on.
Every student will draw one circle for the head before we roll the die. I would have the item listed on the board from my computer to not use any paper for each group since we were working together. At the end, the students voted on who had the best snowman, which made the students want to draw nicely. You can always change the lesson to fit your kids and style.

One die- we used a big die
Markers or crayons, depending on what your students have
A PowerPoint has the instructions in the notes and explains the game and words to the students.
Draw a snowman doc- you can change any item for your game.

I will add the Word doc and PDF file since Adobe is better for presenting the worksheet in front of the class.
