Word of the Day is designed to help children learn how to use a dictionary, whilst simultaneously expanding their vocabulary. Today’s Word of the Day begins with the letter ‘I’. The word is: icicle.
icicle n. Tapering ice-formation, produced by freezing of successive drops of water trickling from the point of attachment.
Winter is drawing in and the playgrounds will soon be slippery. Why not combine this with a lesson on the dangers of winter?
