Demonstrating Melting

Age: From 3.5 years old

Activity Duration: 5 minutes

Objectives: To teach the concept of melting in a concrete and fun way

1. Snow
2. Air-dryer

1. Pretend that the air-dryer is the sun that gives out heat that melts away the snow.

2. Turn on the air-dryer and let your child point towards the snow with the air-dryer and see how the snow disapppear and turn into water.

3. Encourage him to touch the melted snow which turned to water and ask him how the water feels - is it warm or cold.

Additional Information:
J (3Y9M4D) tried this today. It is snowing in Denmark. We had a layer of snow on the cover of our pot lid that stood outside our "outdoor" fridge. We took it in. Joshua wanted to see how we melt away the snow. Daddy thought of the idea of using the air-dryer. We have also shown Joshua how the snow melts away when running warm water on them.
