January(a little late)…we explored snow without a snowflake in sight!

So during the second week in January, we explore World Snow Day! We talked about snow, we made 'fake' snow, and we made a 'snow' drink….without a flake of snow to be seen. In hindsight, this unit would have been better suited for the second week of February!!

Here are some pictures of our SNOW activities….

Our homemade snow globes (actually snow baggies)

Mixing our fake snow (see about for website recipe)

Still mixing our fake snow 

We used our blender, powerlink, and switch so everyone had a turn to mix up the snow drink. We made lemonade and fruit punch. The students LOVED it and everyone had seconds!!

MMMM, yummmm!

Enjoying a 'snow' drink….he tried it and liked it!!

Stay warm…..and check back this week for our super bowl treats, our valentine's day masterpieces, and an exciting announcement about our Donors Choose project (hint, we had a project funded!!)!
