To make the snowman, take 3 balloons and fill them with water making a small, medium and large balloon. Don't make them too big or else it won't melt in a day. I would suggest putting the snowman together at school. Cut the balloons off the ice and use salt to stick it together. Then, add a felt hat, nose, eyes and buttons with salt as well. Use an old piece of fabric for the scarf.
The following picture is a prediction chart to use with the kids to guess how long the snowman will melt. Make sure the snowman is in a pan to catch the water!
The picture isn't very clear! The title says, "How long will it take for our snowman to melt?"
The hat says, "More than 3 hours"
The middle says, "2 hours"
The bottom says, "1 hour"
I made a page to go along with the project. Click on the picture below to download a free copy!
