Primary Science Activities for Winter

In this National STEM Learning Centre and Network video, Zoe Crompton shows two activities that primary teachers can use in the winter. Each one involves using snow or ice. The first activity is inspired by the question "Why do we put salt on the roads?" It demonstrates a fair test to compare the effectiveness of table salt and rock salt in melting ice. In the second activity, students compare real snow with instant snow, looking at their different properties.
