  • Description
  • Teaching Tip

Product Description:

Explore the wonder of winter by observing weather, conducting simple experiments, connecting texts to self, and learning about art: • Winter Sunshine Party • Snow Day Stories (using Eric Carle's Dream Snow) • Michelangelo Challenge (art history) • Scribble Cookies (making new crayons from old) • Frost-Making Magic • Ice-Cube-Melting Race • Expanding Ice Trick (frost wedging) • Cold Water Sinks, Warm Water Rises

Grades 1 - 4

Expanding Ice Trick: As water turns to ice, it expands as much as nine percent. This is why, when the temperature drops below 0ºC, “frost wedging” can occur. Water trapped in tiny cracks expands, causing sidewalks to split and potholes to form. Show your students frost wedging in action with this experiment. Fill a plastic soda bottle to the brim, and screw the cap on tight. Place the bottle in a freezer overnight, and the next day you’ll find that the bottle has split open. The ice has expanded outside the bottle!
