We had a wet then very cold evening. This made for a cool
sensory opportunity on our picnic table! A thin sheet of ice
covered our table and we brought it in for the kids to explore.
See which children were interested and how they played.
|What the table looked like when we brought it in.|
|This guy is feeling the slick bumps on the table.|
|They are also feeling how smooth, wet and bumpy the ice is on the table |
and seats...investigating like good scientists.
|Now the ice is melting and the children are discovering that |
pieces of ice are breaking off.
|How does the ice look?|
|We discuss the bubbles we see in the ice. How did they get there? |
Can you see through the ice?
