Surface Area Experiment
Give each student two ice cubes. individually packaged in Ziploc bags. Chop one ice cube; leave the other whole. Have students observe the ice cubes first to determine which contains the most surface area. Next students should record the amount of time it takes for each ice cube to melt. This experiment is a great cross-curricular activity between math and science as it proves that the more surface area the ice has exposed the quicker the ice will melt.
Unfortunately, I could not find the printable that goes with this activity.
Here is the PowerPoint I created to teach Freezing, Melting, and Evaporation.
The PowerPoint contains the following:
