This Do You See What Icy? lesson plan also includes:
Here is a lesson that kicks off with a question. "How does ice floating on the ocean act as it melts?" As learners investigate this natural phenomenon, they'll discover that it has a lot to do with temperature, salinity, and the effect those two things have on the density of the ice. They discuss the topic, make predictions, conduct an experiment, record their observations, and then work as a group to determine why ice in the ocean acts the way it does.
