Do a test to find out what affects how quickly or slowly ice melts.

Place ice in different spots in the classroom and outside. Using a stopwatch, time how long it takes each piece of ice to completely melt and change state from a solid to a liquid.

What do we need to do to make sure that our test is a fair test?

Before you begin, write a procedure with your teacher for this experiment. You might also like to write a hypothesis for this experiment. That is, you could write where you think the ice will melt the quickest and slowest and why.

Once you have finished the test, you could use labelled drawing to record your observations and findings.
