If your class's knowledge of the Ice Age is limited to animated movies, use this lesson plan to strengthen their knowledge. After sharing what they know about the Ice Age, young readers explore a news article seeking to dispel misconceptions created by the movie Ice Age 2. The lesson includes interdisciplinary follow-up activities.
In this reading about ice skating worksheet, learners read an informational selection, label a drawing with bold print words in context, match words with their clues, and make a chart of the types of figure skating moves and judging categories. Students write eight short answers.
Students identify individual coins and count coin combinations up to one dollar. They count money on an interactive website, print out an ice cream order sheet, and using drawing software create a picture of the ice cream that they order.
In this episode of "Steve Spangler Science" videos, the gas produced by the sublimation of carbon dioxide dry ice creates a nice, fluffy cushion in a bowl of water. Since it is less dense than a soap bubble and cool enough to keep it from popping quickly, the bubble hovers ghost-like on the cushion. This it a good way to demonstrate heat energy, sublimation, and density.
A very interesting demonstration on angular momentum and velocity. If you've ever wondered why ice skaters are able to spin so quickly during their routines, this video explains it in scientific terms. By bringing one's arms in to the chest, the angular momentum is changed in a way that makes the velocity increase. Very good, and it'll make you dizzy just watching it.
Hear experts provide evidence of Ice Age and glacial movement based on today's geological features. Various measurement tools are used to see what chemicals are found in ice and the atmosphere in order to determine the climate of the past. Show your earth science class this video as you talk about climate and prehistoric age.
I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! Kids can practice color matching and fine motor skills as they cut out scoops to put on cones and bars to place over popsicle sticks. Glue the first to pages to the inside of a file folder to create an ice cream stall. The last page includes materials to decorate the front of the folder and a pocket pattern for storing loose ice cream pieces.
  • Create a small, reusable class set of these matching games by printing the flavors on card stock and attaching double stick tape to the back
A nice, hot day is the perfect time to learn how to make ice cream! Three students in this video demonstrate the different steps to make homemade ice cream. Yum!
The perfect treat on a hot summer day is a nice, cold ice pop. The two boys in this video demonstrate how to make ice pops using cups, juice, plastic wrap, and a popsicle stick. Yum!
Students examine relationship between ice volume and the Earth's sea level, and describe how differences in ice volume and composition relate to changes in the Earth's climate.
Students determine sea ice thickness, concentration, and floe size by reading egg codes.  In this sea ice conditions lesson plan, students color code a map based on prescribed criteria and use the maps to identify changes in sea ice conditions.  
A fascinating activity on states of matter is here for your young scientists. Dry ice is used to challenge learners preconceived notions about how solids work. They discover all sorts of interesting facts about states of matter from completing the activities explained in this fine plan.
Students investigate the properties of insulation as it relates to whales and sea ice. They research whales and examine the atmospheric changes that occur when there are changes in sea ice.
Learners study thermal energy and energy transfer to sea ice processes. For this energy transfer lesson, students make their own ice cream and discuss energy transfer and thermal energy. Learners view a radiation overhead and its role in sea ice growth. Students watch a demonstration using water, saltwater, and ice cubes. Learners complete a worksheet about melting the ice.
High schoolers research about the importance of sea ice to world climate and sea organisms. In this earth science lesson plan, students create a model of present and future Arctic sea ice communities. They discuss how ice melting affects relationships among organisms.
Students examine the different propereties of ice, such as freezing temperature.  In this scientific lesson students complete several activities using ice, like making ice cream.
Students observe the chemical reaction that occurs when salt is put on ice, and use the energy that is released to make ice cream.
Students graph sea ice data and predict long term trends in the data. In this climate change lesson, students use sea ice data from the Arctic and Antarctic to construct line graphs. They use their graphs to predict the effects of global climate change.
Fourth graders determine the amount of energy required to melt ice using a calorimeter. They calculate the Molar Heat of Fusion of Ice.
Students perform an experiment with salt on ice to see a chemical change.  In this salt on ice experiment, students pour salt on ice and then food coloring to enhance the changes observed.  Students predict what will happen and hear the ice crackle.  Students make conclusions about the experiment.
