Link to the experiment:
Will Ice melt quicker if it is wrapped?
Steps in the Investigation
Observe how quick an ice cube melts in hot water.
Make a prediction of what you think is going to happen when the ice is covered in different materials.
Lay out all four ice cubes in a row on the table.
Wrap all the ice cubes in their designated material (tin foil, bubble wrap or kitchen roll), and leave one bare as a control.
Set a timer
Watch the ice cubes to see which one melts the quickest, and which one melts the slowest.
Record your results.
Draw up a conclusion.
Compare results to your beginning prediction. (Were you right?, What was different? etc.)
