Preschool STEAM – Winter Science – Week 2
January 18 @ 10:30 AM - 11:00 AM
It may not be warm enough outside to melt any snowmen, but we’re going to melt some inside! You will need from your kit the four biodegradable snowmen (packing peanuts). Please provide water, a plate and a spoon or pipette from home. If you did not receive a kit from the library, you can call to see if we have any of the snowmen still available.
Melting Snowmen – Watch your snowmen disappear right before your very eyes!
Items included in your kit – 4 “snowmen” (biodegradable packing peanuts).
Items needed from home: Water, plate and a pipette or spoon.
Join Ms. Joanne on Facebook LIVE at 10:30 a.m. to hear a story and do the experiment together! https://www.facebook.com/Benningtonlibrary/

Week Two – Melting Snowmen
Draw faces on the other three snowmen. Place all of them on a plate or cookie sheet. Fill a small bowl or cup with water. Using either a spoon or dropper, slowly drop water on each of the snowmen. What is happening? Are the snowmen shrinking? Are they disappearing?
The snowmen are made from biodegradable materials that will melt when liquid is absorbed.
