But wait… there's more. Just imagine the look on the kids' faces when you actually make your own version of pink snow using an amazing polymer called Insta-Snow! As you learn about the power of a whirling dust storm, you'll make a twisting, turning tornado in a bottle.

- Pink Snow is Awesome!!! Review by Holly
We combined our 5th and 4th grades for this learning time. There were many smiles shared during this shared learning time. I tried to upload a pictures but it wouldn't let me. Sorry! The book was fun, plus it qualified for our Accelerated Reader program so they got double benefit out of it. They loved to see the snow grow from the powder. Each group got to make to some snow and then play with it. Then we froze it to see what it feels like... really cold! Amazing! Now the kids want to make a snow hill in our gym. As if we don't have enough outside the school walls....But... How cool would that be:) (Posted on 5/19/13)
