During breakfast today I read a book about a magic snowman. Then we talked about ” what do we already know” about snow and ice. The kids made a pretty extensive list.
Thankfully , when we went outside we were able to test some of our thoughts . There was ice to touch, break, and even a little ice to slide one.
William even found a little snow left over !
Some of the fun inside today was a game with toilet paper. We tried to ” build ” a snowman but it didnt work out quite like I envisioned. HA~!
We made snowmen out of our names. First , I wrote the kids hames on a sheet of paper. We talked about putting one letter on each snow ball so we counted how many letters we each had in our name . Then we counted out the snow balls. The children that could wrote their letters on the snowballs. We glued them together and added a top ball with a hat and drew a face. This is a LOT of steps but they did it !
There was a science provocation. What do you think will happen to the ice if we just leave it in the bowl.
Outside we started a science experience . We gathered some colorful pieces of leaves , berries and a few assorted things from the play yard and placed them in tins. We added water. Tomorrow we will see if they freeze over night and our ” things” freeze with them. ART !
