Snow Exploration

The Ladybirds and Butterflies talked about the weather and what they could see outside. 

They discussed the snow and how it was cold. What they needed to wear such as hats and gloves. 

When they went outside the children collected snow in different sized containers discussing when their container was full using mathematical language. 

The snow was emptied into a tray and a variety of materials was added to the snow to see what happens. 

Different coloured food colouring was added to look at how the snow and water changed colour and how the colour spread. 

Then water was added and the children talked about how it made the snow melt and disappear! 

It was lots of fun.
