As part of our winter/snow activities we have been experimenting with ice and paint that has been watered down. I never expected this activity to be so popular. The children are thoroughly enjoying squeezing primary colours onto the ice using pipettes and have asked to do it every day for a week. They have watched frost form on the ice, they have colour mixed, they have stacked and balanced the ice, they have melted the ice, they have worked together to decide which colours to use and they have been developing their fine motor skills. Overall, this activity has been a win for them AND a win for me.
I have taught many grades, including high school, but LOVE teaching primary.
