We have been talking about winter, colder weather, snow and ice lately. So this was perfect.
So I pulled out a muffin tin, 12 small toys/objects and water. I was just about ready to slip them in the freezer when I realized had made one big mistake by pulling the toys/items myself without consulting JP. He didn't like the objects I was about to freeze, so I revamped and I asked for his assistance. He then picked the objects to freeze and was a much happier camper. The next morning he was so excited and ready to check on the frozen treasures. So at 8am this is what we did:
First, I emptied the ice treasures into an empty bin.
JP learning quickly that by putting the ice cube into the warm water it would loosen the object and come out easily. I know you can't really see his face in this picture, but he is delighted at his discovery!
We used a lot of new vocabulary such as: ice, cold, melt, warm, and freeze.
Overall this was a fun, free, amazing learning experiment!
