Nature Study: Snow

Outdoor Hour Challenge: Winter Series #4 Winter Weather

This week we studied winter weather; particularly SNOW!  We had an unprecedented snow fall last week which enabled us to do a fantastic snow study.  We were able to perform 3 great experiments.  First we used colored construction paper to determine how the color of an object affects its reflection and absorption of solar energy.   We placed different colored pieces of paper on the snow for three hours and then checked to see which color had left the deepest depression.  Of course the darker colors caused the snow to melt quicker resulting in deeper depressions.  The kids were amazed by the difference between the black and white papers.

 
Next we studied how the volume of water changes based on it's state of matter.  T carefully measured 6 cups of snow and then measured the resulting output of water.  Once melted we had 1 cup of water, he was able to determine that there was a 6:1 ratio between the two. 


Final we filtered the water and studied the resulting particles with a hand lens. 



This is a great reason why you don't eat snow.  The children had a wonderful time learning about winter precipitation.  They should be able to study even more snow later this week; we are due to get a HUGE storm.  I'm so excited!

Once upon a time air travel was a great deal simpler than it is today. You called one of a few airlines that flew from your airport, the agent would tell you what flights were available for a given time, and you booked the one you wanted. Airports were always bustling places, especially during the holidays, but as long as you gave yourself adequate time, the process was usually the same. You would check your bags, go through the x-ray machine, get your boarding pass, and wait patiently at the appropriate gate. Once you got on the plane you ate the snack or meal that came with your flight and watched a movie.

In recent years travel by plane has become significantly more complicated. There are so many different configurations for flights and types of fares. Dire economic circumstances have caused airlines to raise rates and charge extra fees for everything from baggage to blankets. There are complex rules about what you can and cannot carry in your luggage. It can be very difficult to determine whether you are getting the best deal or the best services when you buy an airline ticket. The internet makes the navigation of airlines, airports, and flight itineraries easier, but, even so, be prepared to do some research if you want to find a flight at the best price.

Here is something up front that might save you time and money right off the bat. If you are traveling within the United States mainland, always look at Southwest Airlines first. Southwest is almost always the best deal you will find. However, Southwest itineraries do not appear on the major travel websites, so always go directly to the airline's website for information. Plug in your travel plans, and you will get a list of all the flights that are available. Southwest typically charges more reasonable prices than other airlines, and there are no hidden fees. The price you see is the price you get although tax and the government fee that is attached to all flights does apply. For lower prices than you can probably get anywhere else look at the "web only" fares, but keep in mind that these fares are not refundable.
