Snow and Ice Exploration

The Grasshoppers were interested in the recent snow fall. 

They went into the garden to look at the snow and gather it into buckets. 

Finding icicles and patches of frozen ice which they bought inside to examine. 

Inside the nursery the children looked at the snow and ice. They talked about the freezing process.

Then they looked at the melting process. 

They rubbed it between their hands. 

Added hot water to melt the snow and ice. 

They discussed the freezing and melting process and made predications about what would melt the ice the fastest.
