    Thermometers and snow
    We experimented with real thermometers...moving them from hot to warm to cold water and watching the mercury move up and down.
    We experimented with which parts of the room were the warmest and which were cooler.
    We talked about how our bodies have a constant temperature and what it means when we "have a temperature."
    We learned about what temperatures occur during which season and what we should wear.
    We learned that rain freezes into snow flakes at 32 degrees. We looked at snowflakes up close!
