Frosty Returns!

What are we learning? We are learning to observe, record and discuss how materials can be changed by heating and cooling. We started our Frosty off with water and put him in the freezer. We predicted what would happen to the water. We took Frosty out of the freezer and took a good look at him. We observed, described and discussed what we saw. We kept a record of the words we used to describe Frosty.
Hard
Cold
Smooth
Shiny
Cloudy
Sparkly
Wet
As I held the Frosty in the pan we noticed Frosty was dripping on the floor. We wanted to know why. We talked about the temperature in the freezer compared to the temperature in the room. We were curious to see the temperature of the ice so we added a thermometer. We predicted which part of Frosty would melt first. As Frosty melted we observed the changes and recorded our findings in our Science Notebooks.

  1. I love this. I need more details. How did you make Frosty? Water and glitter?
