Observation Station

Science of Snow
 
Put snow in 3 bowls. Bring them inside. Put 1 in the window, 1 in the fridge, 1 under the bed. How long do they take to melt? Once they've melted, put 1 in the freezer. Have an adult put 1 in a pot to boil. How does water change? Solid/Liquid/Gas.

Watch a fun video related to the Water Cycle.
 
Weather
 
Weather, it’s all around us. It affects lots of things we do. Weather helps us decide what to wear, what to do, and even what to eat. Download the PDF of this lesson plus two fun activities.
 
Catch the Rain
 
Have you ever wondered how much rain is really falling when you watch it rain out the window? Today’s activity is to measure and track how much rain falls in a day. This fun and easy hands-on science experiment can lead to discussions about the water cycle.
 

Keep track of your rain gauge data on the Catch the Rain worksheet or graph it over weeks or even months.
