Science Day 21.11.16

How can we stop the ice from melting?

Science Day 21.11.16

On Monday, Year 1 became scientists for the day. First we read the story of The Polar Bear and the Snow Cloud which tells the tale of a little polar bear whose only friends are made of snow so they all melt away. Year 1's challenge was to find the best material to make a jacket to stop the polar bear's friends from melting! We made lots of predictions first about which materials we thought would be best. Then, we wrapped each ice cube up in the different materials and left them over lunchtime. The children were very excited unwrapping the ice cubes and seeing how much they had melted. The best jackets were made from fleece and bubblewrap! We had lots of fun working scientifically and helping the polar bear's friends.
