Exploring Ice Shapes!


With it being so cold recently, a topic of conversation for the children has been snow and ice. In a recent activity focused on this we had so much fun making a range of different sized ice shapes, adding in a variety of materials before pouring in the water.

Once they had set in the freezer the children were very intrigued to explore! We used a range of tools to explore the different ice shapes and laughed at the cold texture! We spoke about what we could see within the tray and pointed out the different animals which would live in these cold conditions. The children explored for a long period of time, showing great concentration and understanding of the melting ice which was amazing to see!

Lots of love,

Everyone at Leighs xx
