Hampstead’s Green Club students embraced winter by making snow globes to help beautify their school garden.
The students shared some great learning experiences while creating their snow globes. They discussed the cold temperatures in winter as well as the process of making natural dyes, which included shredding some beets and cabbage then soaking them to extract the colours.
Ethan, a Grade 5 student, enjoyed his experience saying, “We made snow globes by using leaves, water and dyes. We also talked about how natural dyes were made.” The results speak for themselves.
