Igloo and Icy water

Making patterns with conversation hearts.

We are really enjoying the polar animals in the white sand.

We had a Tuesday chapel this week to make more time for our party on Thursday. Mrs. Kuhlmann led chapel by sharing how much Jesus loves us. 

Mrs. Helmkamp finished the igloo this morning so we were all very eager to get inside, but we had to come up with some rules first so that we don't destroy it. The kids helped write the rules and added them to the side of the igloo for all to see. (This is a great way for them to learn the importance of print and writing)

Nathan practiced matching with some pretend mittens.

We also started researching about the Polar animals. We used National Geographic to find our where the animals live and how big they are. Later this week we will compare our size and weight to the animals.

At the very end of the day we also did a little experiment with icy cold water. (Sorry no picture) We all put our hands in the water to see how long we could keep them in before they got too cold. (It wasn't very long). Then we used a blubber bag (Ziploc bags filled with Crisco) to keep our hands warm. With the blubber we could keep our hands in the water for a very long time. We talked about how polar animals use blubber to keep them warm.
