On my phone I keep a list of questions that my daughters (ages 4 and 5) ask me. The questions are about things that I haven’t thought about for a long time, if ever. For example, last week my youngest asked me why snow is white. If you have kids who are wondering about the same thing, take a look at the following short videos that I watched in an attempt to better explain to my daughters why snow is white.
For Elementary School
Why is Snow White? produced by It’s AumSum Time has the most kid-friendly explanation of why snow is white of the three videos I’ve included in this blog post.
For middle school and high school.
This Week I Found Out produced a little longer explanation of why snow is white and in the process also explained why polar bears are white despite the fact that their fur is clear.
