Alternative Snow Activity (you can complete this activity rather than the Science activity)
Today I would like you to create some outdoor artwork using items you have found outside.
For this activity you will need:
- a shallow bowl or tub
- items from nature
-jug of water
Go outside and find natural items you would like to put in your piece of artwork. Once you gave enough things, arrange these things in your bowl so they make a pattern or a nice picture. Pour the water over your items until they are all underwater. Place your bowl outside to freeze. Once it is completely frozen, remove the ice from the bowl and display your artwork in your garden.
Today in Science we are carrying on looking at the weather as we are going to be thinking about wind.
