5 Steps for Making Your Own Snow Globe
Tips for Extending the Learning
This fun activity from Kindermusik@Home is great for developing basic science skills, including investigating materials, observing the seasons, and making scientific predictions. As you progress through the steps outlined, you can extend the learning by trying some of the following:
- Investigate the materials needed. What does the glitter look like? How does the oil or syrup feel? Is the glass jar smooth or rough?
- Talk about the season of winter. You can discuss cold weather, snow, ice, birds flying south, etc.
- Predict what might happen when you turn your snow globe over. What will happen to the glitter? Will it make any sound?
Enjoy the music and this fun Kindermusik activity!
