As you probably know, if you put ice in a drink, it cools the drink down. At the same time that the ice is cooling down the drink, it is being melted by the liquid it is in. Do you think that if you put an ice cube in hot water, it will melt at a different rate than if you put it in colder water? During this activity, you will investigate how ice melts in water.


In this activity, you will

  • Observe the melting of ice cubes over a period of time.
  • Learn about the properties of solid water and liquid water.
