Year 3's Snow Globes

Here are the year 3's snow globes!

Snow Globe mania!

These are the year 2's snow globes.  They are hanging in the classroom ready for next year.  We had to think about what our world would have in it if we lived in a snow globe.  Then we used oil pastel and dye to create our backgrounds.  Next we posed for a photo.  Once the photo was taken we laminated it, placed it on the picture and attached it to a plate.  We then decorated the plates and named our worlds! Here they are.  If you want a closer look, come in and see!
