- BRAIN BREAK
Preschool through 2nd grade students will get the most out of this video activity.
We wrote the story about two characters who are looking for a snowman. That means they need some snow!
Our characters go on a journey through several natural biomes as well as challenges to find the snowman.
They’ TIP TOE through the desert, JUMP across a river, RUN through a forest, and finally, CLIMB a mountain to get to the snow.
Your children will love singing the song as well as doing the challenges.
At the end they have a snowman dance party.
