During the winter season, we can’t help but want to explore everything ice and snow!
And we love finding different ways to connect the winter weather throughout our curriculum.
As the weather gets chilly and the snow starts to fall, we find ourselves immersed in snowy fun! So we build our names with this Snowman Names activity and dive into science with our Ice Fishing experiment. And we decorate our classroom with adorable Snowman Thumbprint Art.
The winter wonderland is a great backdrop for all kinds of learning, including hands-on science lessons.
So we’ve created four January Science Experiments to connect science with a seasonal theme. Students can conduct science experiments, make hypotheses, ask and answer scientific questions and record their observations.
Are you looking for more ways to implement science across your curriculum with a January theme? Be sure to check out our January Science Mega Bundle.

- recording sheets for your students as they complete the experiment to record their observations
- 2 options for each recording sheet, allowing you to differentiate for your students
Polar Bear Blubber
Students are fascinated with Polar Bears! This experiment is a great way to talk about animal adaptations with your class. They will be able to make hypotheses’ about how these enormous creatures can to stay warm in freezing temperatures.
As we prepare this experiment, our little learners are able to make observations and then record their results.

Blizzard in a Jar
Our little scientists are captivated when they watch the chemical reaction with this Blizzard in a Jar! As the snow creates a blizzard right before their eyes they won’t be able to look away. And you’ll sneak in some basic chemistry.
Bring the snowstorm right into your classroom with this exciting hands-on experiment!

Hot Cocoa Science
This Hot Cocoa experiment is a great way to talk about matter with your class using a delicious chocolate drink. It will also give your students the opportunity to discuss their observations and the similarities and differences with various temperatures.
As the experiment progresses, students will compare and contrast how the cocoa dissolves during different stages of the experiment.
Your kids will love building their very own snowman right in their classroom!
Students will make hypothesis’ then they’ll observe the relationship between the acids and bases that occur when adjustments are made in the ingredients.
This experiment has instructions on how to modify the ingredients needed depending on your access to real snow.
