Science comes to life with experiments!! During your heat unit, incorporate this heat experiment about measuring temperature and how temperature changes.
This fun experiment takes hot water and drops an ice cube in each minute. Students will record the temperature change after the ice cubes go into the water. Students will repeat the steps dropping a total of 3 ice cubes into the water at the end of the experiment to see how the hot water affected the ice cube and how the ice cube affected the water.
My students really loved this experiment and it was a great way to use the thermometers!
