Ice Hockey?

After experimenting with water and ice cubes to explore how matter can change, the girls made up their own game.

Ice hockey.

Here's how to play. You need 3 ice cubes. One ice cube per child and one ice cube for the puck. They had so much fun hitting the ice cube across the table with their own ice cube trying to get it past their contender! Laughter and cheering. How did our science lesson turn into this? Well, they were being creative and I knew the game would eventually end. When the ice cube (solid) melts into water(a liquid). See, they were learning as they played and didn't even know it!! Isn't that the best type of learning, learning that occurs through discovery.

Take Care,

Jen
