Years 1 and 2 carried out an investigation using ice cubes which they placed in different places or placed in different things. They then observed which piece of ice melted first. They had to consider the following questions:
Where are you going to put your ice cubes?
What can you do to make this a fair test?
What things need to change and what will stay the same?
Which one do you think will melt the quickest?
Which will be slowest?
Which one was actually the quickest?
What have you learned doing this experiment?
You can see some of the results they obtained below.
