In this activity children investigate the best conditions to stop the ice cube from melting and apply knowledge to describe how to save the snowman.
Snowy conditions mean that many children will be lucky enough to build a snowman. But how can we save the snowman and stop him from melting?
Children will investigate the best conditions to stop the ice cube from melting. Children will then apply this knowledge to describe the best way of saving the snowman.
- that when ice melts it turns into water
Children will learn:
- that when water is very cold it turns into ice
- to plan a fair test
These resources were initially developed in partnership with the Centre for Science Education, Sheffield Hallam University.
