The big boys (all boys?) are quite taken with ice and water. They’ve conducted all kinds of ice related experiments; most of what they have learned involves floating and melting. I love that they learn so much around here by doing. I love even more that they called themselves “ice biologists” for a while; it became a teachable moment where we discussed whether or not ice was a living thing and how we know if things are alive. Ah, learning at home; it can be messy but they are learning so very much!
