Activity: Where Did the Ice Go?

Goal: Collects, Describes and Records Information

Let's Get Started:
1. Place ice in the water table or tub.

2. Give the children an opportunity to play and explore in the ice with different tools.

3. Ask the children to observe what is happening to the ice as they are playing.

4. Draw attention to the water when the ice is completely melted.

5. Give each child a small journal book or a large paper folded into fourths.

6. Have the children record what happened to the ice by drawing pictures. The first picture should be of the frozen ice with the final picture being the melted water. Observe what the children do in the pictures between the ice and the water.

If using POCET, this Activity correlates to Developmental Guideline: SC 2 Collects, Describes and Records Information.
