Learning is Snow Much Fun

While most of the United States experienced severe weather this week, here in southern California we had a rather pleasant and mild week.  So, how do you prepare for winter fun when there is no snow?

Well, you have to make it!


I found this wonderful resource to make a snow.  Not only did it take two ingredients, it also felt cold to the touch.  Above is my six year old having a little sensory snow fun, too.

We made this at school today and my class was super excited to conduct this experiment.  We made a science connection using this resource.  We were all so engaged that I don't have any pictures to show you.

Afterwards, our snow was included into a Word Work center.



Students worked in pairs to match the mitten rhymes.  


Learning can be snow much fun even when you have to make do without having snow right outside to play in.

Happy Teaching!
