Winter Water invites children to investigate two cold-weather natural phenomena, freezing and thawing of water, in the comfort of the warm indoors. Snow and ice are the main ingredients for this easy, entertaining, engaging, and economical science experience. Children learn how to make hollow ice orbs. They also test predictions about what happens to snow as it melts in a fun and fast-paced snow melting challenge. If snow and below-freezing outdoor temperatures arenÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½t typical in your area, a few simple modifications easily adapt this topic for use in warmer climates or when the weather in cold climates is uncooperative.
