Today's science lesson

Assalamu alaykum,

London woke up under a calm, soft, white and unreal day! It's April, BST (British Summer Time) started but....It's snowing!

When I open my eyes this morning my kids opened the curtains and from under my duvet I looked outside. A magical scenario. It looked like a painting in motion. -It's snowing- they shouted happily!!

We run downstairs and looked at the garden full of white, soft snow.

My hubs went outside and got us a bucket full of snow. So the kids and I started to build our own house snowmen! Whe then looked at it while melting with the warm of our hands and the temperature in our house.

The kids asked me all sorts of questions e.g. where the snow come from? why is it snowing? why does it melt? how many degree should be outside for it to snow? Wow!

So much reading it's taking place at the minute. Also what I could answer I used islamic background to explain.

I like to share some pics.
