It can be difficult for my kids to embrace “winter” projects when it really never gets that cold where we live. Although we live in a warm climate, we still enjoy the winter season with winter resources and these free winter STEM projects.
It is so hard to get into the spirit of winter when you are sweating the second you get out of the freezer in January. Truth is, where I am from, the “winter” months are in June/July-ish.
That is totally weird to my psyche. Donning a sweater in June never feels right, and I have been here for about half a decade already.
Christmas music in my car with the windows rolled down because of the heat is just not right to my soul. I guess growing up in New York did that to me.
That glimpse of the first white winter snow was everything. I miss it just a little more every year away from it. A few years back, I wanted my kids to experience snow for the first time. It didn’t quite work the way I wanted.
We traveled up to New York from Florida, but all we saw were a few flurries that wouldn’t stick. This year, we were supposed to visit New York and try our second shot at a white Christmas but clearly, the Lord had other plans.
We will still celebrate our American winter and do what we can with what we have. Our lessons consist of all things “cold weather.”
We are starting with learning all about animals of cold weather climates (i.e. arctic, taiga, and tundra.
