Many thanks to the 2nd Grade teachers at Helen Thompson School in West Gardiner, Maine for sharing this great melting snow & ice experiment activity guide during the 2020 WinterKids Winter Games!

Lesson Summary

In this activity, students will conduct an experiment in order to find which solid melts the fastest: snow or ice. It can be incorporated into a unit of study that explores the Next Generation Science Standards’ Disciplinary Core Idea for 2nd Grade: Structure and Properties of Matter.
