Is There Ice on Mercury?
In this ice on Mercury worksheet, high schoolers read about the data collected from the NASA Messenger and the Arecibo Radio Telescope indicating the possibility of ice on Mercury. Students solve 6 problems including finding the scale of the image, determining the diameter of features in the diagrams, determining the total volume of ice predicted and determining the mass of the ice.

The Global Warming Debate and the Arctic Ice Cap
In this global warming and the Arctic ice cap worksheet, students use two graphs showing data about the amount of Arctic sea ice between 1950 and 2006 and the percent of people surveyed that believe the Earth has gotten warmer over the last two decades to answer 4 questions.

Glaciers and Ice Wedging
Fourth graders observe and identify a variety of weathering and geological activities in the area in which they live. This focuses primarily on what happened during the Ice Age, and how, even today, glaciers are shaping and re-shaping the landscape in certain parts of the world.

Volcanoes!: The Dangers of Snow and Ice
Students 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.

Global Climate Change and Sea Level Rise
Ice is nice, and its condition on the planet has a significant effect. Junior geoscientists experiment with ice melting in both water and on land to discover how each affect the rising sea level. This detailed lesson outline even includes photographs of the lab setup so that no questions remain.

Making Ice Cream & Having a Ball
Steve Spangler has created a toy that relies on science to make ice cream! He uses a ball with two cylinders inserted. One contains rock salt and water, while the other contains the ice cream ingredients. Once sealed, a family kicks the ball around for 20 minutes to mix and freeze the concoction.

Dry Ice Boo Bubbles
A rather simple, but impressive activity is displayed in this Steve Spangler Science video. Dry ice, solid carbon dioxide, is used to create gas-filled bubbles. You can perform this as a demonstration when teaching chemistry classes about sublimation, polymers, or air pressure.

Homemade Ice Cream
Here is the recipe for making ice cream in a couple of zip-top plastic bags. It is a fun way to demonstrate phase changes, especially when the weather is hot! Use this in your elementary science curriculum when introducing the states of matter.

South Pole Ice Cream!
How can you turn an ice cream activity into a scientific investigation? It's easy if you know ionic compounds, heat transfer, and the exothermic and endothermic process. Learners will explore the science behind freezing, insulation, and changes in states of matter as they investigate what is actually taking place to help them create a frozen treat.

Cold Hard Facts? What Inquiring Minds Will Know -- Inquiry-Based Ice Investigations
Students are introduced to the concepts of perimter, diameter, circumference and measurements. In groups, they complete two worksheets in which they determine if the ice dimensions make a difference in the way it floats. They discuss their results to end the lesson.

Sea Ice: Cracking the Egg Code
Students study the egg code to learn about sea ice. In this sea ice lesson, students discuss and view a diagram to learn about the egg code when describing sea ice and its thickness. Students work in groups to play a game using the egg code.

Under the Ice: Imaging Glacier Bases with Sound
Students investigate with radio waves that are used to remotely sense the topography beneath the ice sheet. They experiment with travel time of waves and convert data to distance and depth. As a result, they develop a profile of the topography beneath the ice sheet.
