Yesterday Ash Class discovered a range of Dinosaurs that had been frozen in ice. We discussed how ice is formed and together came up with a plan to free the dinosaurs. The children came up with ideas of places where we could place the frozen dinosaurs and predicted what one would free the dinosaurs first. The children chose to leave one in the classroom, two were held by each child and one went under warm water. The warm water melted first! Mercedes wanted to smash the ice – we are going to do this next week to see if it’s even quicker! We will let you know!
The children knew that outside would take the longest because it is cold.
