Preschool Science "Frozen" Edition

 

We're trying to get kids excited about learning about science and if Goldieblox has a major point it's that sometimes it's all about the marketing and packaging of the idea. Since I was going to do snow and ice during my next preschool STEM session, why not call it "Frozen" Preschool STEM and use those beloved character faces (maybe Photoshop some lab coats on them). Will more girls come?


The possibilities are endless for this so here's my 2 session plan:


Session 1: Making Snow
What happened to the weather in Frozen after Anna leaves? 
Talk about meteorologists and tools
What makes a Blizzard?
Making our own blizzards in a jar

Materials:
Glitter
Paint
Baby Oil
Alkaseltzer
Jars
Water

Tools:
Thermometer
Weathervane

 
Session 2: Melting Snow
What did they do when Anna was Frozen?
(You could also base it around what would happen to Olaf during the "in summer" song?)
Talk about archeologists and tools
Stages of Water
Ice Excavations: How do you melt it and safely?

This will be based on two posts:
Save the Snow Princess
and Lego Excavation

Materials:
Tupperware and frozen figures
salt
Lego guys
sugar
Tools:
blow dryer
eyedroppers
rulers (to measure melting)
magnifying glass
thermometer

Some other great ideas to try: Thank you Pinterest!
