Winter Wonderland

The children in Gilliatte room 5 have been fascinated with ice and snow!  Last week, some of the children found some blocks of ice outside in the sandbox, and they wanted to bring them inside of our classroom.  We put the blocks of ice in a tray and left them out at room temperature to see if they would melt...and they did, just like we had predicted!  One of the children suggested that we then put the melted water in the freezer to see if it would turn back into ice, and it did.  The children have also enjoyed bringing some of the snow inside and painting on it.  To go along with our investigation on ice and snow, we made freezer bag ice cream this week.  It was a huge hit!  :)
