Slide 2

After seeing the Snow and Snowman of our Little Explorer friends from Europe we decide to explore ICE. We fill balloons with water. We put them in the freezer to freeze.

Slide 4

We take the balloons out of the freezer after we sleep for one night and come back to school. We feel the balloons. They are oh so cold Brrrr…. We peel the balloons. We are very careful because ice can burn our hands. We compare sizes and sort the six ice balls. We build a snowman by placing three ice balls one on top of the other and sticking each with salt. We then wrap an ice ball in newspaper and another in cloth. We cover an ice ball with sawdust. We put another ice ball in a plastic bag. We cover another ice ball with salt. We pour cold water over another ice ball. And we pour hot water over the last ice ball. And we observe what happens.

Slide 6

Brrrr… the ice balls are cold. Some are big and some are small.

Slide 11

After one hour the ice which we cover with hot water is melted.

Slide 12

After two hours the ice ball covered in salt is melted.

Slide 13

After three hours the ice balls in cold water and in the plastic bag are beginning to melt.

Slide 14

After four hours the ice balls covered with newspaper and cloth are still not melted.

Slide 15

After we sleep for one night and come back to school, all the ice is melted except the ice which is covered in sawdust. There is still a small ice ball.

Summary: preschool children make ice balls and do various activities with them.
