Melting Snow & Ice Experiment

Melting Snow & Ice Experiment

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.

Students, Teachers, and Families Impacted in Maine & New Hampshire since 2010!

WinterKids is the only nonprofit in Maine dedicated exclusively to increasing outdoor physical activity in children and families during our longest, most sedentary season.  

The shorter, darker, and colder days of winter and the increasing allure of screen time make it all too easy for kids and families to “hibernate.”  At WinterKids, we make it our business to provide kids, parents, and teachers with the right option: to get outside, get active, and have fun in the winter – and year-round.

Outdoor kids are active kids. Active kids are healthy kids. Healthy kids are happy kids. Happy kids are “winter kids.”
