Urd’s Snowflake Rune Cards are based on a snowflake-shaped rune stave with the 6-fold rotational symmetry seen in natural snowflakes. We realized that gave us an opportunity to connect the runes with geometry, chemistry, and crystallography in addition to the expected mythology and history lessons – and so the free Urd’s Snowflake Syllabus and Lesson Plans were born. We’re currently running a 30-day Kickstarter campaign to pilot both the cards (as a limited first edition) and the syllabus. We’ll be looking for educators and homeschoolers to test out the lesson plans and give us feedback to improve the syllabus in the medium term. Our longer term plan is to do a wider release of the cards and an expanded booklet, with art by new artists with each edition.
