Ice and snow are fascinating. In a wintry climate, on a cold day, snow and ice can be directly experienced and observed. Temperature, ice cores, snow depth, snow density as well as the duration of winter (a deep snow pack and late season snow extend the winter season) determine the severity of winter and play a role in fresh water availability and climate change. Participants will both explore and experiment the wonders of phase change. This resource involves winter hikes and outdoor activities as well as indoor experiments for Elementary students.
