Look out, look out, Jack Frost is about!

Our first week back from the Christmas holidays has been such a busy week! We started the week by sharing rhymes and a story about Jack Frost which led us on to wondering whether it would be possible to grow our own frost. We gathered ice, water and salt together and gave it a go, although the frost only appeared for a few minutes before it changed back to water (a bit like when the frost on the grass changes to dew in a morning). We shared some ideas about how we could change the experiment and then used more crushed ice and a lot more salt. We placed it outside and even made a sign to warn others not to touch it as we were worried that warm hands may make the frost disappear. Sure enough, the frost stayed for much longer. Take a look at our experiment and our other wintery activities…
