I found this great ice experiment from The Mailbox magazine. After having no school this past Monday because it was too cold to be outside, I knew an experiment with ice was perfect! I froze three pie pans of ice at home, ready to be use by smaller groups of students.
The students tested five objects (marble, yarn, paper clip, pencil, rock) on the ice. They were testing how easily the objects moved across the ice. As the students took turns tapping the objects to see if they moved over the ice, they recorded their observations on their paper. They also answered four questions about which objects moved easily/not easily in the ice pan.
