|A bowl of fresh snow.|
I love snow! This year has been pretty snowy and I just can't get enough. I love it!! Anyway, in The Winter Nature Study E-book there is a suggestion to collect some snow and then melt it and compare the volume. I finally remembered to do this at the start of the storm rather than after it was over. I wanted it to just collect in the bowl but Emma didn't know that and filled it up with the snow and packed it in.
|She filled this can that was in the recycling bin too.|
|So I packed snow in a quart jar|
|Starting to melt..you can see how it is "shrinking"|
|Looking at the snow with a magnifying glass|
|This is how much water we got in the can.|
|This is the amount of water in the jar. |
When we started Emma estimated
it would be half full.
