And now, we have got some new questions to answer. Its amazing how I saw my children draw out arguments and rationales from previous experiences they had. This is how we started today...
|We wrote down our plan and questions etc.|
|We set up our experiment and made a plan to come to it ever hour until the ice melts.|
We decide to do math while waiting for the time. After an hour, As and L were done with Math.
And this is what we found:
|Ice with salt|
|Ice without salt|
|As things were becoming confusing, As and I decided to put it in the computer. Now she can practice typing too.|
After an hour...
|This is whats left of the salt water ice.|
Here's what we have...
|Questions: Is salt water colder that fresh water? Is an iceberg made up of salt water or fresh water?|
As is referring to the Titanic Exhibit we saw in Singapore last April.
And The book "Star in the Storm" was one of the 3 Read Aloud books we read this summer.
And yes we did this while in our pyjamas! If you have any input about salt water, fresh water and how they melt etc. do let me know. We were not able to answer our questions today.
