The melting ice experiment below should say.... MELTING ICE not winter penguins!!!

We froze the same amount of water in different shaped containers. We watched them melt.

We found out that the more surface area a frozen block of water has the quicker it melts... because water melts from the outside first!!!

Melting Ice Experiment!!!!!!

This is a fast one (at melting) because it has a large surface area.

In room7 we are learning about science.

We do lots of experiments with Ice and water.

Here we are tiring to figure out which block\cube melts first.

Our big idea this term is on CHANGE.

We are experiementing with ice and how it changes.

We know that...
  1. ice is a solid
  2. sugar mixed with water and then frozen melts faster than just ice
  3. ice melts from the outside first
  4. water is a liquid

We did an experiment with a large ice cube. We put water, food dye and salt on it.

The salt dissolved a little bit and it left a hole in the ice.
