Science: Examining states of matter

For science today, you will need to wrap up warm, put on some waterproof footwear and get outside. With your parent/ carer, play in the snow and investigate some different things. How does the snow feel? What happens when it warms in your hand? Can you discuss together what happens to water when it freezes and how does it turn in to a gas?

Then, mix this is with some D&T learning. Who can construct the greatest snowman? Please send some photos of your fantastic construction learning :)
