In this activity, learners of all ages can enjoy experimenting with ice. Try this experiment at the kitchen table or in the great outdoors to encourage budding scientists to experiment with ice.
In this activity, learners will explore basic information about thermodynamics by experimenting with ice. Learners will compare ice melting rates on metal pans or plastic cutting boards.
Ice Cube Painting
In this activity, learners "draw" with frozen tempera paint. The ice cubes are prepared the day before by placing watered down tempera paint and popsicle sticks in ice cube trays.
In this "Sid the Science Kid" activity from Episode 108: My Ice Pops, learners observe reversible change while thinking about ways to make ice melt.
Using Tools and Melting Ice
In this activity, learners will experiment with different materials that can melt and change ice.
Mini Glacier Meltdown
This activity (located on page 3 of the PDF under GPS: Glaciers Activity) is a full inquiry investigation about the different causes of glacial melt.
In this activity, challenge learners to keep an ice cube from completely melting in 30 minutes. Learners engineer a box or wrap to prevent an ice cube from melting.
In this experiment, learners float colored ice cubes in hot and cold water.
Global Climate Change and Sea Level Rise
In this activity, learners practice the steps involved in a scientific investigation while learning why ice formations on land (not those on water) will cause a rise in sea level upon melting.
