Projects
Can you make an ice cube disappear? Put it on a hot sidewalk. It melts into water and then vanishes. The ice cube changes from solid to liquid to gas. Try it!

Extension: Place one ice cube in a bowl outside and place one ice cube in a bowl inside. Which one turns to liquid faster? Why? After more time, does one completely disappear? Why? Where did it go?
Proyectos
1)¿Puedes hacer desaparecer un cubo de hielo? Ponlo afuera en la banqueta caliente. Se derrite en agua y luego desaparece. El cubo de hielo cambia de sólido a líquido a gas. ¡Inténtalo!
2) Extensión: Coloque un cubito de hielo en un plato ondo afuera y coloque un cubo de hielo en un plato ondo adentro. ¿Cuál se convierte en líquido más rápido? ¿Por qué? Después de más tiempo, ¿desaparece uno por completo? ¿Por qué? ¿A donde se fué?
