Frozen 2 | Day Plan
Disney+ is releasing Frozen 2 early and it arrives in Canada on March 17 (I think the U.S. may have it already?) I thought it'd make for a fun homeschooling day. Disclaimer - I haven't seen the movie yet (my kids went without me) so I'll be watching it on the 17th!
Just like the "Ish" day plan I'm just going to leave an assortment of activities here that you can choose to work through if you wish. They're just suggestions - leave some out, rearrange, add your own, do what you want with it!
Activity 1: Movie
Watch the movie Frozen 2. If you don't have Disney+ you can get a 1 week free trial.
Activity 2: Go outside
Nothing fancy here but after you sit for that long it's a good idea to get moving!
Activity 3: Mystery Science
Mystery Science is such an amazing resource. I've chosen 2 science lessons that you could go through that relate to snow and the cold.
* I think you'll have to sign up for the free account to access these. It's worth it.
*Note - go check out the activity instructions before you start with your kids. Each lesson needs you to print some things out and prep a couple of things. If you don't want to do the activity the lesson is still worth watching. They'll demonstrate the activity as well so you can still learn from it even if it's not hands on.
Activity 4: Frozen Yoga
Here's another Cosmic Kids Yoga story for you!
Activity 5: Art
I've linked the website and instructions for this fun activity. It's so pretty!
You could also try this Snowflake Salt Painting
Activity 6: Snowflake Science
Here are a couple videos on the science of snowflakes. The first is more appropriate for probably grade 4 and up.
The fictional town Arendelle is located in Norway. This is a fun connection to learn a little about the country of Norway. Here is a free packet of resources.
Activity 8: Math
I'll try and provide a few simple activities that would work for various grade levels.
K-3 - Cut out an assortment of shapes (circles, skinny rectangles, triangles, etc). Have you child create snowflake patterns with the shapes. A pattern implies that they aren't random so for example if one of the six arms of a snowflake has a rectangle then a triangle and then a circle, each arm should be the same.
4-7 - Draw various snowflakes using a ruler and then measure the interior angles within the snowflake using a protractor.
Identify each angle as either acute, right or obtuse.
8+ - I'm not sure I can figure out a themed connection lol. Check out IXL, Mathletics or Khan academy and pick out a lesson on shapes or angles :)
Activity 9: Outdoor Time
Go outside! Play.
If you want to extend the theme you could try painting snow if you still have snow.
You could build a fort to use as a castle.
Go for a walk in the woods and sing "Into the Unknown" ;)
Again - this is more than a days worth. Follow your kids lead - linger in the places they are interested and have fun with it!
