Melting Point of Metals

The hostess visits an antique shop and obtains three different metal-made curios. She then has them melted down in a foundry, measuring the temperature at which each becomes a liquid. Since you could never do such an experiment in the classroom, this is a fun video to show when introducing young chemists to the properties of metals. It could be used as an enrichment when teaching periodic trends as well.
