I am literally teaching in an igloo right now. My windows are completely blocked in by snow. So how do I make lemonade out of lemons? I decided we'd have to use all this snow in an art project with a dash of science. I got the snow directly from my window and put in on their trays which the kids thought was pretty cool. They built with the snow until everyone was "served" (or until they couldn't feel their fingers, whichever came first;) Then we added watercolors in the primary colors. We watched the colors literally melt together. Speaking of melting, we talked about the states of water from solid icy snow, to liquid water and next week to completely evaporated.
So, to make all my friends who aren't snowed in jealous, here is the project (I am totally joking here, if you are in New England I know you can feel my pain.) This one is for you NATALIE
