Here is a simple science experiment to demonstrate how ice melts. I did it one day with four kids under 5 years of age. It was a hit.
First step is to plan ahead and freeze a few bowls of water. I used glass containers with silicon lids. Then, when I was ready to melt ice with the kids, I flipped them upside down (with the lid still on!) and placed them under warm, running water. After the ice loosened up a bit, I dumped them out of the containers and placed them on a tray. You’re going to want to do that; It can get quite messy!
Step 1 with a group of pre-schoolers is of course laying claim to the one of four IDENTICAL ice blocks prior to attempting the experiment.
