Students in Florida had never seen snow, so a teacher had her sister in Kentucky send the class a snowman. Lol.
What began as a lesson about weather and snow turned into a hands-on class project overnight. A former Kentucky school teacher who now lives in Florida discovered that only two of her students had ever seen snow in person.
That gave her an idea, and she gave her sister in Kentucky a call.
After an early January snowstorm, Estes thought there was enough on the ground to make a snowman. She went into her yard and created Lucky — a Kentucky snowman who got its name in the hopes that it would arrive in Florida intact.
"So, we put him inside the packaging, we wrapped him up in that foil, and we put ice packs in, we sealed him up," Estes said. "There was Styrofoam around the box. Off he went down to the local UPS store."
"So then we went to the classroom and had the kids open it and just the pure joy of seeing that snowman," Hughes said. "To me, that's what teaching is about."
This is amazing.
