Frozen Water Before? I'm Sure You Have; But I Bed You've Never Frozen Salt Water! Water!!

Students examine what happens to salt water when it freezes. In groups, they measure density and salt concentrations in different samples of water and record its freezing time. They discuss the relationship between water density and the depth of the ice and compare all graphs to end the lesson.

I am actually not a teacher, yet. I am a college student on my way to becoming a high school math teacher. Lesson Planet has been a lifesaver on several occasions. I have used it for everything from learning how to word a lesson plan to using a lesson plan I found on the site to teach a mini-lesson. I use it quite a bit now so I know it will be invaluable in my teaching career. It is great as it is and so easy to navigate.
