Kelley Merkle, Allysa Meirowitch and Kathy Savino’s classes at Birch School got into the winter wonderland spirit.

The children and teachers competed in an indoor snowball fight complete with team names, colors and cheer.

“We incorporated our math skills by estimating the number of snowballs on each team,” explained Meirowitch.

“We then practiced using tally marks to represent the score,” added Merkle. “To our surprise it was a tie.”
