Jack Frost Hits Town


Jack Frost arrived in Northland this week and what a show he put on. But what is frost? How does it happen? What is it made of? I have no idea. So could someone please help me.

PS Where did the saying of Jack Frost come from and how did it start?

  1. Hey MR V hear this. A deposit of small white ice crystals for on the ground or other surfaces when the temperature falls below freezing.

  3. Hi Mr V I found out that the coldness freezes the water and makes it into frost.

  4. Hi Mr V. I had just found out how frost is formed. Frost is formed by a deposit of small white ice crystals for on the ground or other surfaces when the temperature falls below freezing.

    decorate (a cake, cupcake, or other baked item) with icing.
    tint hair strands to change the color of isolated strains.
    injure (a plant) by freezing weather.
    anger or annoy.

  6. Hi Mr V listen to this, Frost is the solid deposition of water vapor from humid air. It is formed when the temperature of a solid surface is below the freezing point of water and also below the frost point.[1] The size of frost crystals varies depending on the time they have been building up and the amount of water vapor available. Frost crystals are translucent, but scatter light in many directions, so that a coating of frost appears white. There are many types of frost, such as radiation and window frost. Frost may damage crops or reduce future crop yields, hence farmers may take measures to prevent it forming.

  7. Hi Mr V hear this. I found out Jack Frost is the personification of frost,
    ice, snow, sleet and freezing cold weather, a variant of Old man winter held.

  8. We made frost! We've made snow in a previous post and that seemed to be a big hit with those of you who don't get snow, so I decided to do another experiment involving a wintery theme. (Actually we haven't gotten much snow here in NE Ohio/Midwest either so it seemed to be popular with everyone!) The experiment for this post: Making Frost! We found this experiment at Weather Whiz Kids here. Here is some real frost on our garage window which has been a rare sight this winter! There is a real beauty to the frost formations that you find on windows in the winter. Keep reading to find out how we made frost in the comforts of our own home.
