Where am I? | 7-14 yrs | Reading Pod

Holy Moly,

Where am I?

What’s small, pretty and cold as ice?

A Snowflake!

A flake of snow is essentially a feathery ice crystal. All snowflakes only have six sides.

How do Snowflakes form?

A snowflake begins to form when an extremely cold water droplet freezes onto a pollen or dust particle in the sky. This creates an ice crystal. Ice crystals form in mostly cold places where its snows a lot. Snowflakes are so delicate that when we touch a snow flake with our bare hands it starts to melt right away.

Can you imagine the number of snowflakes that need to stick together to even make a snowball? Before I crash into the snowman, I should get out of here!
