Learners study thermal energy and energy transfer to sea ice processes. In this energy transfer instructional activity, 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.
Young scholars examine how water transforms itself from a solid to a liquid and back again to a solid. In this water and ice lesson, students obtain knowledge about how water is constantly cycling into various forms. Young scholars observe, measure and describe water as it changes states from solid, liquid, or gas. Students listen to the book "Amazing Water" by Melvin Berger.
Young scholars observe a demonstration of how melting snow and ice can contribute to mudflows. They then observea list of continents with the number of snow and ice covered mountains on each continent and discuss. They then label a group of volcanoes on a blank map and plot a volcano and its snowline including its approximate latitude.
Interested Earth enthusiasts are introduced to ice ages. The 26,000-year cycle is charted and the eras named. Several slides are dedicated to the carbon cycle and how it contributes to the changes. The reasons for the cooling of the planet are also displayed. Most of the slides are plain white with black font, but there are a few charts and diagrams to help clarify information.
Young scholars analyze earth science by creating a frozen treat in class. In this heat transfer lesson, students discuss how matter is transformed from solid to liquid and liquid to gas when energy is removed from the equation. Young scholars conduct an experiment in which they squish a bag full of ingredients with their bare hands in order to create ice cream.
You scream, I scream! Young learners read this passage about ice cream flavors, then answer 13 questions about details from the reading. The questions address details from the text, vocabulary, and parts of speech. Use this activity to assess your class's reading comprehension skills - and prepare to debate about their favorite ice cream flavors! An answer key provides in-depth explanations of each solution.
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.
