Classroom Updates

Room 24A English Kindergarten - January seemed like the best time to work with snow and snowmen. We tried to beat the -30 weather with an introduction to the Scientific Process. The important parts of the early learning science process are First, Next, Then. We looked into what steps are required to make Hot Chocolate. Then, on a very cold Thursday morning, we made our own cups of delicious cocoa.


First put a teaspoon of chocolate in a cup.
Next add warm water and stir.
Then add 5 marshmallows.
There was great success and delicious warmth to celebrate our success.

“A cup of warm milk blow, blow blow.
A spoonful of chocolate stir, stir stir.
Marshmallows on top, 1,2,3.
A warm winter treat for you and for me!”

Science continued in Room 24A as we looked into what makes snow melt. We brainstormed what are good ways to make snow melt. The discussion lead to 4 ideas: fire, salt, water and being inside. So, we created small icemen and tried melting them in different places.

Fire (our warm window)
Salt (dumped table salt on one)
Inside (on a shelf in the classroom)
Water (submerged in water in our sink)
All the snowmen melted, but the quickest… can you guess?
The one covered in SALT!!
