British science week in 1A and 1B!
Our investigation was to help escape the figurine from the ice and our big question was - 'what is the quickest way to melt ice?'
We started our afternoon by using a hook, looking at a picture of ice. We discussed that ice is formed by freezing the liquid water. We also discussed that freezing point has to be 0 degrees. We predicted that the quickest way to melt ice could be using heat like sunlight or a fire. We realised we didn't have that equipment in our classrooms so instead melted our ice in groups by providing it with heat from our hands and insulation. We discovered that ice does need heat to help it melt. We freed our figurines and had a really fun afternoon!!
Well done to 1A and 1B for working so hard!
