Exploring Ice

It is "I" week @ LSU 
and we are Exploring Ice!
We froze water in Tuperware containers overnight.
We touched the ice and talked about how it felt,
"cold, smooth, hard, slippery, wet, etc..." 
 Then we added salt to our Ice and watched how it began to change form.
We noticed, "holes, cracks, grooves, lines, scratches, etc..."
We added food coloring to the top and watched it dribble
down the cracks and lines of the broken ice.
We then held the ice under running water
and watched it change shape even more. 
The water created larger holes and cracks.
We continued to play with it as it melted in our hands. 
We had so much fun exploring Ice today!!
