Each student was given two ice cubes individually packaged in Ziploc bags. One ice cube was chopped; the other was left whole. Students observed the ice cubes first to determine which contained the most surface area. Next students recorded the amount of time it took for each ice cube to melt. This experiment was a great cross-curricular activity between math and science as it proved 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:
