Lesson plan thrown out of the window!

The class’ topic is ‘Keeping Warm’ and we decided to collect snow and measure its temperature every ten minutes to see how long it took to melt and reach room temperature.

The children were careful not to touch the snow with their hands to cause additional melting. They then accurately read thermometers.

It didn’t take long for the snow to melt, around 20 minutes for most groups and then an additional 20 minutes for it to reach room temperature.
