A Snowy Day

With the temperatures rising we were able to get back out in our schoolyard to play. The students and teachers had a blast making snowmen, snow angels, snow dinosaurs, and more!

Painting in the Snow

Here our children are painting on the snow. For the paint we mixed water and food coloring.

Dinosaurs in the Snow

We have been studying dinosaurs in our classroom this month. The kindergartners have been measuring the length of different dinosaurs. Here some of the kindergartners show the afternoon class how long an Apatosaurus was. It stretched across our entire schoolyard (90 feet)!

We also made a dinosaur in the snow with a dinosaur sand mold kit. The children painted it green.
