Exploring Ice

Following on from our work on the five senses, the children in Bumblebees completed a science experiment using ice.

They explored the ice with their hands using their sense of touch, used descriptive language that they had learnt earlier in the week to explain how the ice felt and then they each predicted what would happen when the ice was placed into a bowl of hot water.

The children had great fun and especially enjoyed watching the hot water being poured over the ice and watching it melt away.

After the ice had melted, we added containers, spoons and bowls and the children made their own ‘Christmas Tree Potion’.

Fantastic work Bumblebees!
