SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCIV) -- Students at Pinewood Prep in Summerville got a snowy surprise Wednesday morning.

Pinewood Prep's science teacher Chris Cusack gave a hands-on lesson in winter weather by cranking up his snow machine overnight, turning the campus into a "Winter Wonderland."

Students learned how freezing temperatures and rain can turn into snow perfect for creating snow forts, snowballs and snowmen.
