Putting the Ice in Hockey

Eighth grade physical science classes examine why the ice on which hockey is played is slippery. They do so by discussing phases of matter and the molecular motion in each. They read an article on a website and write out answers to 10 reading comprehension questions. Although there are no hands-on science experiences as part of the lesson, associating phases to the field of ice hockey adds a practical relationship.
