The Snowman's Coat Science Experiment
We love doing this experiment with the P1s each year. It's very simple to do and the outcome is usually different to what the children predict will happen.
When doing this experiment in school, we just make 2 large ice cubes by freezing water in plastic cups.
Once frozen, remove the ice and place on a dish or tray.
Place a sock over one of the ice cubes.
Encourage your child to talk about which one will melt the quickest and why?
After a while, check the ice and discuss the outcome with your child.
The sock has kept the ice cold and stopped it from melting as quickly.
