Science Task – Ice Rescue

The following activities should only be completed with adult permission and supervision.

Place a small plastic toy or figure into a plastic container and fill to almost the top with water.  Put it in the freezer until the water is frozen. Remove and leave to loosen for 5-10 minutes and tip it out onto a plate or tray.

What happens when you pour a little bit of warm water onto the ice?                                   What happens if you put salt onto the ice?                                                                                   What do you think would be the fastest way to rescue your toy from the ice?              What could you do to find out?                                                                                                      Are bigger toys easier to rescue from the ice than smaller toys?
