Science Experiment


What you will need:

-Ice tray, cups or containers to form ice in


-toys ( penguins if you have any)

-bowls or tray to hold the ice in during the experiment

-Variables to test: Sugar, salt, water, hitting it, etc..



1: First Pose the question- What do you think will melt the ice and free the penguins? Which one do you think will do it the fastest?


2: Allow the children to experiment with each variable, timing how long it takes to free the penguin.


3: Discuss what you have learnt with the children and if their prediction was correct. Take some pictures to show us your findings.
