Snowflake Measuring

Snowflakes, snowmen, and ice houses, oh my!  We came back after the winter break to a winter wonderland in kindergarten.  Throughout the month  we've been studying the arctic.  Today my kiddos did some measuring with snowflakes.  Each student had a partner to measure.  After measuring, my kiddos completed a page for our class book.  I can't remember where I found this fabulous lesson, so please let me know if it's yours :)!

What is insulation?  My little scientists built ice houses.  We started bright and early by placing an ice cube inside each house, and we kept track by watching the clock to see how long it took for the ice to melt.  Some ice cubes lasted all the way until 3:00pm!  My kiddos loved this experiment!
Tomorrow we are building igloos!
