Bright Idea...or Should I Say A "Hot" Idea?!

We've had several days of indoor recess this winter, thanks to the -25 (and lower!) wind chill outside.
Here's how we kept 'warm' in the classroom.
Project a video of a burning fireplace in your classroom on a cold winter day to make the room "warm" and cozy!
 {Just check YouTube for the cozy fireplace video, and project it on a large screen}
