Snow day???? Not for us!

So everyone else in the metro area had a snow day but us.  I heard on the radio, "100 schools in the metro area closed, so kids go back to bed."  Well not us!!  Sad day when all the schools around you have it off and you don't.  Well, I made it in and we made the best of it. 
We started out writing with reading "The Snowy Day" by Ezra Jack Keats. Then with that newly fallen snow on the ground we took advantage of it. We bundled up and went out and collected snow!!  So fun!  Then we filled our clear container and brought it in.  Before we went out we predicted how long it would take for it to melt. 
"3 minutes...100 minutes..." Of course everything is 100 after the 100th day of school!! Those were some of my favorites. I don't think the kids realized how long it would actually take.  



Collecting Snow!!

Then we came in and wrote about our experience! 


I took pictures of our snow as it melted! 


30 minutes

 2 hours

 4 hr. 30 minutes

We had to go home for the day.  So we didn't get to see it melt all the way.  Next time I will do this first thing in the morning or not let the kids pack it down so much in the container. Anyway a fun and exciting way to embrace the snow since we couldn't stay home. :(
