In this story, Peter rushes outside for an adventure in the snow.

This lesson also supports text-to-text and text-to-world connections.

Making Predictions with The Snowy Day

Each scene of The Snowy Day places Peter in a new activity on his snowy adventure. Early readers will enjoy making logical predictions about what Peter will do next and how his decisions will play out.
