Your child will explore states of matter, specifically experiencing melting point.
~buckets of snow
~optional: shovels, toy cars & trucks, cookie cutters, spoons & more
Fill the sink with snow & play!
While you play, encourage questions & ask some of your own.
~I wonder, what will happen to the snow once it comes into the house?
~I wonder, how long the snow will take to melt completely?
~I wonder, will turning on the cold water change the snow at all?
~I wonder, would hot water change the snow in the sink?
~I wonder, what will be left in the sink if the snow melts?
Bonus Lesson: After seeing the crud (twigs, leaves, sand, dirt, etc.) left lining the sink, once the snow melts, your child in not likely to wonder anymore about why he/she should not eat snow!
