Young scholars identify the problems associated with building a structure on permafrost. In this physical science lesson, students investigate how heat and pressure affect the rate of ice melting. They read an article about traditional housing and write an essay that explains why the permafrost underneath the structures did not thaw.
Students compare the change in snow and ice over a 10 year period. In this environmental science lesson plan, students use the live data on the NASA site to study and compare the monthly snow and ice amounts on a map of the entire Earth. They use excel to analyze the averages.
Students investigate the freezing point depression of water while making ice cream. In this colligative properties lesson plan, students make ice cream using ice, salt and water to freeze milk and sugar. They measure the temperature of the ice, salt and water solution to observe the depression of the freezing point. They apply this to the use of salt on roads in freezing weather.
In this reading about ice skating worksheet, students 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 discuss the three states of matter and how they are affected by temperature. They make ice cream in a bag while observing how temperature change affects the mixture. They discuss why some specimens froze more quickly than others and how salt affects the freezing time.
A fascinating lesson 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.
High schoolers research about the importance of sea ice to world climate and sea organisms. In this earth science instructional activity, students create a model of present and future Arctic sea ice communities. They discuss how ice melting affects relationships among organisms.
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.
Students explore polymers by designing and preparing an inexpensive and effective reusable ice pack. They develop and test a design for a reusable ice pack in the science lab. Students apply chemical and physical properties of polymers and their uses while creating the ice pack.
Students explore physical science by reading a water properties story in class. In this ice formation lesson, students read the book Five Little Penguins Slipping on the Ice before creating snow cones in class. Students utilize ice cubes, white paper and paint to create "ice paintings" in class.
