January 20 - Snow Experiment

All snowflakes are 6 sided crystals.  No two snowflakes are alike.  Look at some snowflakes through a magnifying glass.  You can see the crystals.

Do you have a rain gauge at home?  Fill it up with snow. See what happens after the snow melts.  How much water is there?  Is the rain gauge less than half full of water?  Snow takes up more space than water does because snow has air in it.
