We were seeing the snow disappearing on the playground and we started to wonder what snow becomes when the weather gets warm. We decided to put some ice and snow in a glass and bring it into our class to see what would happen.
We waited for a little while and then, looked at the glass again with our eyes and with a magnifying glass.
We also touched what was in the glass.
We were very surprised to find that there was water in the glass and that it was cold and wet.
We learned that ice and snow turn into water when it is warm and that we call that process "melting".
We were very impressed!
