To kick things off, we took turns reading the following fiction books:
- Lost in the Snow, a Magic School Bus Level 2 Scholastic Reader by Joanna Cole
- I Love Snow by Hans Wilhelm (My son read this Level 1 reader himself.)
- The Biggest Snowball Fight! By Angela Shelf Medearis (Get ready for some giggles! This is a funny one.)
Then, we got busy making "snow" from a bar of ivory soap. Check out this Steve Spangler science video to see what we did (and how cool it was).
While it looked like snow, it didn’t feel (or smell) like it. We moved on to our second attempt, using Insta-Snow Powder, which I bought at an educational toy store that just opened (I like to support local business and it was only about $4). Just add water, watch, and be amazed! It felt more like snow but still wasn’t the real deal. We talked about the differences between winter snow and our Insta-Snow.
