TOPIC

This will be the second part of your ice investigation! Before you rush to the freezer talk to your grown up about what you did on Wednesday – just to recap! Can you remember those new words – absorb and liquid. The other word was solid – this is what your water should be like now.

Set up a space where you can place your ice – you will need somewhere to put it like a tray or a plate. A plastic cloth on the table will be a good idea if you have one and a towel or paper towel to ‘absorb’ the drips might be useful!

Take your ice from the freezer and take it out of the container and put it onto the tray/plate. Spend sometime investigating your ice – pick it up – talk about how it feels and what happens when you hold it – not just to the ice but also your hands! Your water has gone from a liquid to a solid.

You can now investigate your ice further in different ways – you can watch to see how quickly it melts when you just leave it; you could pour some cold water onto it – does it melt quicker? What happens if your water is hot – this is for an adult to do, please be careful!!  If you put anything into your ice what happens as the ice melts?

There have been lots of new words – liquid, solid, absorb, melt.

One last thing to think about… your water started as a liquid it, then changed to a solid, (and even changed its name from water to ice!), and it then changes back to a liquid! Quite a lot to think about!

Well done! We hope you enjoyed your investigating!
