Fun with snow and ice! Snowman Unit and activity ideas!

Hello All, Are you ready to go back to school tomorrow? I have enjoyed my 2 weeks of late nights and sleeping in but it will be nice to get my kiddos back on schedule! This week we are going to be studying snow and ice. Here in central Texas we sometimes see ice a couple of times in the winter and rarely see snow. So here are some activities that I plan on doing this week with my kiddos on top of my new TpT Snowman Unit. (1)Fake Snow Sensory tubs: Lakeshore learning sells a polymer based "snow" that you add water too and it feels cold and can be played with safely by kids. I plan to put this on trays and allow the kiddos to play but also write letters and numbers in it. (2) Ice coloring: Place ice on a tray and drop food coloring on top, watch as the ice melts and the colors mix. (3) Ice and Oil experiment: Make colored ice cubes with food coloring. Drop them into a container filled with vegetable oil and watch what happens! (4) Borax snowflakes (borax is toxic so make sure the kiddos don't try to eat these) form pipe cleaners into snowflakes and place a yarn hanger on it. Fill a jar with hot water and 1/2 cup borax mixed. Place yarn hanger over a pencil so that just the pipe cleaner hangs into the borax mixture. Let sit overnight and see what happens. (5)Have a cotton ball snowball fight in your hats, mittens and scarves, then enjoy some hot chocolate! These are just some fun activities to add to your learning this week. For ABC and 123 Snowman activities please check out my Winter Snowman Unit on TpT it has 106 pages of learning fun, tons of activities, centers and ideas for Snowman fun! These are just a few images of what is included please click on the link above to open a preview file on TpT and a description of all that is included. Have a fun and safe return to school! Till next time, Christine
