Our first day back after Winter break brought us lots of snow!
We ventured out into the cold along with Ms. Sara and the preschoolers and schoolagers.
We took a ruler with us and first made predictions about how deep the snow would be. After measuring we found that some of us were very close in our predictions. Then we discussed if we thought that the snow would measure the same all over the playground. Some of the children said that it would be the same and some thought that it might be higher or lower in other places. We measured many different areas and found that the measurements were either the same as the first or higher. Our highest measurement was 5.5 inches. That is a lot of snow!!!
