So far, our snow accumulation has been pretty sad this winter. Last winter, we were so lucky and had TONS of snow! This year, however, has been mainly cold and rainy – at least so far!
My students had been talking about how sad they were about the little snow that we do have, and how boring this winter was.
Because of that, I decided to bring our own snow into the classroom for science!
What You’ll Need:
- 2 1/2 cups baking soda
- 1/2 cup white conditioner – I used Suave Coconut Conditioner to ensure the bright white color of the snow, and for the yummy smell!
- Mix the baking soda and conditioner in a large bowl. The snow feels cool and kind of heavy, like a wet, heavy snowfall would feel!
I doubled the recipe to ensure each of my students could take some home in a Ziploc bag. They all got the chance to play with it, make snowballs, and take the fun with them!
This awesome, hands-on science experiment was incredibly easy, and put a huge smile on my students’ faces!
