We spent much of our time outside on “Science Friday.” 2nd graders put on snowshoes and headed to the Outdoor Learning Center (OLC) to conduct some snowflake/subnivean zone investigations. They used their observation skills to look at snow under a magnifying lens to identify and classify types of snowflakes found at different depths in the snow pack. Last week,they measured snow pack depth and temperatures at different depths to understand how small mammals survive the winter in the subnivean zone. Some hands-on skills learned: math -using a yard stick to measure (ties into inches and cm math lessons); using a thermometer to measure air temps in F.; using a magnifying lens. Reading & writing – reading informational text to learn about snowflake crystal formation; writing and organizing information in science journals about what they learned. There’s so much to learn about our Lake Superior Watershed!
