How fast does snow melt? Can salt make snow melt faster? This product includes two different experiments for you to complete with your class! The first experiment is a simple one: put some snow in a jar and see how long it takes to melt. Students will also observe that snow takes up more space than water. The second experiment uses two jars of snow: 1 normal jar, and 1 jar with salt added to determine which melts faster. Have your students follow the scientific method to make a hypothesis, collect data, analyze results, and make conclusions. When printed back to back, the pages can be folded into a simple book where students can record observations and analyze data.
New! Updated 1/5/16 - For those of you teaching in areas with no access to snow, now this product also includes each experiment with the word "ice" to replace "snow". I would suggest using ice chips instead of cubes for best results!
