Brrrr!! When we can't go outside, we bring the outside in! Take a look at how we started two different science explorations. One of them is our science centre, and for the next few weeks we'll be trying to heighten our sense of touch by closing our eyes and letting someone touch an object to our cheek. Here are the probing questions: What was it? How do you know? What are some words that describe what you felt?
We've also been bringing ice and snow inside, and finding out what happens when we add salt, sand, paint, or water. We tried different tools to see what would happen. We found out that if we waited a bit till the snow got 'melty', it is better for building! We learned a lot of things about the properties of snow, ice, and water.
