Lessons with Pam - The Snowy Day_ Read, Make, Do
All / Holidays and Seasons / Winter
Hi, my name is miss Pam, and I'm from building blocks, child development center here in Spencer West Virginia. And I have a book in the science project to be with you today. First of all, we're going to do a little bit of a science project. Okay. So what I have here is I have a piece of white paper. And I make it more for sure. We need some gray markers. And well, I guess we'll try. Maybe a purple marker. That way it's easier to see. Okay. So it's winter, and we know that what happens in the winter, everything gets a little bit colder, the days get shorter. And it gets colder outside and something happen. Like this morning, when I woke up, there was these little white things flying around in the air outside my house. I'm going to order that. It's snow. It's not one again today. Just a little bit. So we're going to talk about some snow, okay? So over here on my piece of white paper, we're going to draw a little gray cloud. All right, and here's our little gray cloud. And he's up in the sky. And then inside this little teeny tiny gray cloud. There's all these little itty bitty pieces of water, okay? There are routine tiny drops of water. All right, bunches and bunches of bunches and bunches and bunches of them. Okay? And then as you can see, I'll put more and more dots in my cloud. The darker the more dogs I have, the darker my cloud gets, okay? Now I can set you're not going to make a lot to dots and ducks and ducks and Dutch. But you see what I'm saying right down here, okay? So right down here on the bottom, you can see that we're getting darker and darker and darker and darker and darker and darker. And some of those little dots are getting to be bigger dots. Look at that. They're getting closer together and they're getting to be bigger dots. And there comes one out of the sky. Oh, I don't another one. And another one, I don't know. So all these little dots get together. And they make the bigger dots. And one of the bigger dots gets so big. That's when they fall out of the sky. Okay? So when they saw the sky, it depends on what kind of day it is. Now if it's a summary day, the fallout as raindrops. But if it's a one tree day, these kind of things fall out and a little pieces of ice or and I'm going to do it in purple so you can see what they are, okay? Smells like so we're just going to draw some simple snowflake right here. All right. And all these little snowflakes fall out of the sky. All right. Now, but you can see my snowflakes my snowflakes look a lot a lot, okay? There are cadet different, but they're pretty similar. Every single snowflake that falls out of a cloud is different. No two snowflakes are alike. So this snowflake over here might look like this. Okay? And there's even some snowflakes that look like the letter I that people have seen. So here comes all these different snowflakes, falling out of the sky. And then they get down here to the ground. And then we get more snowflakes, some more stuff, like so more statics. And we get all these snowflakes and get in and guess what? Then our ground is covered in snow. All right, so we start out here in the gray cloud and our little teeny tiny spots of water get bigger and bigger and bigger and bigger until they fall out of the clouds. And they mix Netflix and there's Netflix for all the way down to the ground. Now I didn't draw all kinds of stuff I just made a little dots down there. So like I said, we could be sitting here all morning long it makes snowflakes because they're all different. So here we go. Cloud, drops, bigger drops, snowflake, snow. All right. So, now that we know it was snow, you think I could get on my mat. My coffee cup is very cold. I don't think there's coffee in my coffee cup. I mean, what there is? I actually brought a snowball. I went outside my house this morning. And it was very cold. I made a snowball, and there he is. All right. Oh, he is so cold and I squeezed him down really, really good, and he's a hard hard snowball. So, for our side, so we're gonna do a little bit of the Sam's experiment. I'm gonna take a piece of my snowball. Okay? Have you seen them in my little bag right there? I'll switch over to this camera. See myself like in my bag. I remember my snowball. I'm just gonna put a little snowball in my bag, 'cause if I put a big sniff bomb bag, I might have a problem here in a little bit. So we're gonna see what happens. All right? So I'm gonna take my snowball. And I'm gonna put it in the pocket. Down here. And we oh, that's cold. And then we are gonna restore it. All right? Our book is called the snowy day, but Ezra Jack keats. And this is one of my favorites. One winter morning, Peter woke up and looked up the window. Snow had fallen during the night. It covered everything as far as he could see. After breakfast, he put on his snowsuit and ran outside. The snow was powder very high along the street to make a path for walking. Crunch crunch is feet sank into the snow. He walked with his toes pointing out like this. And he walked with his toes pointing in, like this. I see all these little tracks. He made straight tracks and then he went for these toes pointing out. And then the toes pointing in. Then he dragged his feet slowly. Let's make tracks. There's this tracks. And he found something sticking out of the snow that made a new track. We had two, one, two, and now we have three. One, two, three. It was a stick. A stick that was just right for smacking her snow covered tree. Down, velvet snow, plop. On top of Peter's head. He thought it would be fun to join the big boys in their snowball fight, but he knew he wasn't old enough. Not yet. So he made a smiling snowman, and there it is. And he made angels. Hey pretended he was a mountain climber, and he climbed a great, big, tall, heaping mountain of snow. And slid all the way down. He picked up a handful of snow and another and seal another and he packed it round and firm and put it to snowball in his pocket for tomorrow. Then he went into his warm house. He told his mother all about his adventures while she took off his wet socks. And he thought and thought and thought about them. Get him a nice, warm bath that he was about to hold. We were outside. Before we got into bed, he looked in his pocket, and his pocket was empty. The snowball wasn't there. And he felt very sad. Well, he slept. He dreamed at the sun, had melted all the snow away. But when he woke up, his dream was gone, and the snow was still everywhere, and new snow was falling. After breakfast, he called to his firm from across the hall, and then went out together into the deep, deep snow. And now wait a minute. Peter put that snowball into his pocket. And then it wasn't there. Now, wait a minute, I'll put a snowball on my pocket. I hope myself are still there. Well, it's not really messed up all anymore. What happened? Look at my snowball. Well, it's not a snowball anymore. Look at that. It just looks like some pieces of ice and some water. In my pocket? What could have happened to my snowball? You know what happened? Same thing happened to my father happened to Peter snowball. When things are cold, and you want to stay, then it has to say cold outside. When things warm up, the snow helps away. It's like in my hands, I can hold my bag here to add my little bit of ice in it. I hold it in my nice warm hands for a little bit, and guess what happens? Now, my cubes are gone. It's all gone, and the only thing that's left is a little bit of water. Okay? Now, you think of that frozen back into like a snowball? Nope. That actually looks like ice cube. 'cause it takes something special to make snow. The snow has that. Remember I started out as a little itty bitty kitty cane drops water. And then it has to freeze to become a snowflake. Come on. What about the coffee cup? My snowball and my coffee cup. Now my coffee cup coffee cups, this has got an insulated cup. And an insulated cup. If you pour hot coffee in it or hot tea or hot cider or hot chocolate, it'll keep it hot. But if you put something cold in this cup, then it's going to do the same thing. It's going to keep it cold. So do you think I still have snowball in my cup? Let's find out. Let me see. We'll get my lid here just in case I got a dribble. Oh, now you move that up. We don't get our books. Let me see if I can pour it out. What happened? Nothing's coming out. No water's coming out. No snowballs coming out. You know what? I think it's stuck. There it is. And see, no water. My cup is an insulated cup. And it has a pocket of air between the outside cup and the inside cup. And that is what keeps my snowball frozen. And if I keep my lid on there, I just might get to take my snowball. Come with me. What do you think? I think I got enough snow. My house had really don't need another snowball. But I could. So you could go outside today, if there's snow at your house. Make sure you wear your boots. And make sure you wear a warm coat and warm jacket, or one pants, and some more boots. And scarf for your head and some mittens for your fingers. Okay? Gotta make sure that we keep our bodies warm. When we go outside and it's too cold outside and we get our bodies we get really, really cold. Then, that can make hard our bodies, and we don't want you to do that. It can cause frostbite, make your fingers get all tingly. And we don't need that. So make sure if you go and go outside, you are all your proper clothes. All right? Well, that's it for me today. I hope you had fun. I hope you learned a little bit about snow and what happens if you put it in your pocket. I'm glad I put my stuff on a plastic bag. I'm not pocket would have been wet. Just like Peters. All right? Well, I'll see you next time. Bye.
