What is Winter?!

The children are investigating winter. When asked what winter was, the children replied, “Winter is when it snows”. We began to discuss snow, and if we ever see snow where we live. This led to the children trying to make sense of why we¬†do not have snow in Sugar Land/Missouri City. The following is some of the dialogue from the discussion.

“Winter is when it snows. But it doesn’t snow here, because we have fog.”

“Snow does not come here when fog is out.”

“Fogs are the clouds, and fog doesn’t move.” “Fog is grey”
