I know it's not Wednesday, but with illness in our house, I'm a bit behind with this study. Enjoy!
We are using the Winter Wednesday Notebook Pages and Activity Ideas from Barbara over at her blog called Handbook of Nature Study. This is my second post from the Challenge.
With temperatures in the -30's Celcius (with wind chill) and more and more snow accumulating, this study was an easy one to get into. Everything is covered in the stuff. Frost and ice cover the insides of every window (We need a scraper for the inside of our van! LOL!). The trees are covered in snow and frost. The above picture shows pine needles covered in ice crystals.
When temperatures are so low it can become painful quickly on any exposed skin and breathing becomes difficult (it hurts to breath). It was a great time to take what was outside and bring it indoors to experiment with. We didn't follow the instructions very strictly. Instead of waiting for snow I gathered some of it in a container and gave it to Zoe while Ausytn was busy with something else. She started to play.
Austyn soon became interested and began to give her ideas of what to do with the snow.
I then got him some snow as well and they both went too work playing with snow, cold water, and warm water.
