PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

When the snow starts falling, students love to play around in it. Here is a science experiment that ties in their love of snow with learning! This Science Experiment measures the amount of liquid in snow and leads to a discussion on density. I tie this experiment to an introduction to our fractions unit in math. Even in 5th grade students need a reminder that fractions are a part of a whole. They will also get to see a real world example of when fractions, graphs, and line plots are used to help understand information. Students in younger grades won't need the worksheets but the questions on them can be done as a class. This experiment can be done in one or two days depending on available time. You will need to do some other lesson while you wait for snow to melt. My name is Melanie Whitesides and I would appreciate any suggestions to improve it. Thank you.
