Ms. Holcomb & Mrs. Childress
The girls created detailed snowflakes that were each unique while still remembering that the snowflakes should have six points and should be symmetrical. The girls' creations were so beautiful. After completing this step, the girls were asked to draw their creation using a fine tip black pen.
Learning around the room:
Applying our learning to real life experiences.
We found ice!!
It is so so cold outside there is ice everywhere!
I want to take this home.
If you take it home it will melt like in that book we read.
Yeah, it was A Snowy Day!
The ice is so skinny. I think it is going to break if we bend it.
Applying our knowledge through artistic expression
Snowflakes have six sides so I need to have six sides on my snowflake too!- jk student
Now that we have seen how our warm hands can make ice melt, the girls began another experiment to see which of 5 trays would melt the fastest. The trays each tested a different theory; salt, sugar, warm water, milk, and then ice without anything added.
Emma-warm water because it will melt fast When I put ice in my milk at home it melted. Maddie
If you put hot water in cold it will melt faster. Lindy
I think salt. Jaycelyn
Hypothesis of what will melt the ice the fastest:
After lunch we headed back to the lab to see what the results would be.
The water melted it the fastest! Even the lego fell out!- JK student
