Kids Activities and Crafts
Freeze large containers of water. Remove the chunks of ice & toss them in the pool. Icebergs! The kids in our pool were amazed that something so heavy actually floats. They also liked watching it slowly, slowly, melt (disappear!). Play "Antarctica"! Ask the kids... what's different about the water now that it's frozen? [It's grown in volume & become opaque] Ice floats because when it freezes it expands & becomes less dense than the water it displaces.
