4 Winter Sports Activities for Kids

Below are our favorite winter sports activities for kids.

1. Winter Sports Writing Activity

This Winter Sports Writing Activity motivates 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade students to practice working through the writing process.

It can be used in class to model research and note-taking, sent home as an out-of-school assignment, or used to provide capable students who need their learning extended with an independent project.
