Have your children ever wondered what happens to the snow after a warm day? This phase changing experiment can be a fantastic learning opportunity. Help your child, or have them do it on their own. These simple steps can help them learn to make observations about what happens to the snow.
In a clear plastic cup or container, collect 1 cup of snow from the yard.
Bring the cup inside and observe the snow. Is it a solid, a liquid or a gas? Find a place to leave the cup for a day or two.
Check on the cup the next day. What happened to the snow? Is it still a solid?
