Our Pre-K students have been excited about snow this winter. They even experimented with it! They brought some snow in to the classroom from outside and made predictions about what would happen to it. Students dictated their predictions in their science journals. The next morning they entered the class excited to see how their experiment worked and if their predictions were correct. What they found was some water and wood chips remaining in the cup. All of the children agreed that the snow had melted.
Eager to play with snow inside the classroom where it’s nice and warm, our teachers declared, “let’s make our own snow!” By mixing baking soda with shaving cream, students were able to build and adorn table-top snow-people.
