Introduce your child to how items change (freezing and melting).
What You Need:
• A small plastic container or cup
• A paper towel
What To Do:
1. Have your child fill up a small plastic container with water.
2. Tell him you’re going to put it in the freezer.
3. Ask him what he thinks will happen to the water.
4. Show your child the container of water after a half hour. Ask questions such as, “Did it freeze completely yet?”
5. Once the water is completely frozen, let your child touch the ice and describe how it feels.
6. Put the container outside in the sun and describe to your child what happens. For example, “It’s starting to melt!”
7. After the ice has melted, put a paper towel over the water and allow your child to watch the water be absorbed into the towel. Ask him what happened to the water.
