Reception class investigated ice. We compared a bowl of water to a bowl of ice and discussed which might be colder. We used a thermometer to measure the temperature of each bowl. We then investigated which substances might melt the ice the quickest; salt, sugar or bicarbonate soda? The children made a prediction as to which might be the best and then we carried out our investigation. We found that salt was the best as it melted the ice the quickest.
