While there are many winter related Wonders at Wonderopolis, I'd like to share some of the snowy related Wonders.  What's better than spending a snowy day wondering about weather and snow?  These Wonders would be great to share before an impending snow, with your class via social media when they have a snow day off of school, or upon the return from a day off of school because of snow.

#79 Why Are All Snowflakes Different? (Lisa Kincer-@KincerLisa suggests using black construction to catch and observe snowflakes)

#97 What's the Difference Between Snow, Sleet and Freezing Rain?

#103 Why Is Sand or Salt Put On Roads When It Snows?

#437 How Are Sleds and Sleights Different?

#463 What's the Best Thing To Do on a Snow Day? (great for graphing or a writing prompt)
