Playing in the Arctic

I've been waiting for a day with fresh snow to put snow in the water table.

We've been reading books about snow and ice all week.  Polar bears became the favorite around here.  

With snow in the water table along with chunks of ice I had frozen in the freezer  made for cold play.  
We started out with just hands then went to gloved hands.  It was still cold so hot water was requested.  I gladly added it.  That was part of the plan.

Our Arctic adventure turned into a discovery of adding heat (hot water) and finding that the snow melts....and even the ice melts!

It was a fun activity that included learning about animals from the cold regions and learning about melting from ice to water.
