Today in the Walnut Room the children were able to experiment with ice, salt, and watercolors. The children got to see how salt melts ice and how the watercolor looks when it travels through the melting ice. This was a popular spot in the school throughout the day and the children seemed to enjoy it. There were two blocks of ice in the tub. One of the blocks was completely solid and the other block of ice was hollow. The children noticed how much quicker the hollow ice block melted than the solid one.
