Year 2 children brought the snowy weather into the classroom
this morning, experimenting with ice.
They were given different materials to
see how quickly it melts the ice. These materials consisted of sand, bubble
wrap, salt and hot water. The children who were given sand as their material soon
began to realise that it was not helping to melt their ice very quickly.
However the children that had hot water on their ice said it disappeared
In their next Science lesson, instead of looking at
materials that help melt the ice, they will be experimenting with materials that help to stop
the ice from melting.
