Earlier this week, GEMS PreK-2 students enjoyed an award-winning marionette show presented by visiting Puppetkabob artist and GEMS alumni, Sarah Frechette.
“The Snowflake Man” tells the story of Wilson “Snowflake” Bentley who was a self-educated farmer and scientist.
He became world-famous in 1885 when he became the first person to photograph a single snow crystal.
Students engaged in this exciting learning experience that combined art, science, and American history.
The show was a success and a favorite among these young learners!
