Snow and Ice.
Minneapolis Independent School District 275, Minn.
This experimental edition provides a number of activities useful for investigating snow and ice with elementary school children. Commencing with games with ice cubes, the activities lead through studies of snowflakes, snowdrifts, effects of wind and obstacles on the shape and formation of drifts, to a study of animals living under snow. The emphasis is on involving children in discussions concerning the need for careful recording of observations to reach valid conclusions. Important ecological effects, such as the insulation afforded by snow, are stressed. Additional activities concerning temperature effects and suggestions for relating snow studies to other curricula areas are included. Necessary meteorological information is supplied for the teacher. This work was prepared under an ESEA Title III contract. (AL)
