Let It Snow!

We have been having many discussions about weather and how clouds and rain are formed. Last week during a discussion about weather, one student said that she wished she could feel some snow. We talked about the fact that it doesn't snow near where live. I asked if she would like to play with some pretend snow. So this week we have a tub with pretend snow and animals that live in the snow. The children have really  enjoyed exploring and playing with it. Part of the experience is the science exploration of creating 'snow' by combining sodium polyacrylate (from inside a disposable nappy) with water. It actually feels cold and resembles snow.
