In this lab activity students figure out what happens when ice is added to water. This basic lab allows students to use thermometers to record the temperature of water in Fahrenheit as ice is being added.
At each lab station, students will need a beaker of water, a thermometer, and a ice cubes. Students will take the temperature of the water at the starting time and then add an ice cube. Students will add another ice cube and continue taking the temperature of the water every minute for five minutes. At the end students will draw conclusions about what happens to water when ice is added.
