At the beginning of lab, PreFirst scientists briefly learned how to read a thermometer. We discussed that snow will not fall unless it is raining and the temperature is 32 degrees or below.
We moved to the tables and made artificial snow with a super absorbent polymer. Because they are studying the forest ecosystem, I added forest animals and trees, as well as other cups, plates, and sticks. Such a great sensory experience that also develops creativity, communication, and fine motor skills! If you leave the snow out, the water evaporates and it becomes a powder again.
