In the 9th unit of the Science Kids series, we will investigate the states of matter of water as it changes from frozen to liquid states.
The “Science Kids” series of packets is intended to help teachers implement developmentally appropriate, hands-on science activities for children in Preschool, Kindergarten and the early grades. The activities in these packets are based on the scientific method and encourage inquiry-based learning.
Investigations in this unit include:
✔ "Ice Treasures"
✔ "Light or Dark?"
✔ "Adding Salt and Color"
✔ "Ice Cube Race"
✔ "Which is Heavier?"
✔ "Oil and Ice"
✔ "Painting with Ice"
The final investigation in this unit is a student-designed investigation that will test how certain ingredients affect the time it takes an ice cube to melt.
The packet also includes a fun recipe for Ice Cream in a Bag! (And the scientific explanation for how this recipe works.)
