When we freeze water, we know that it changes from a liquid to a solid. But have you ever tried freezing other liquids?


Investigate what happens when you freeze:

  • tap water
  • salty water
  • fizzy pop (a clear liquid such as lemonade if possible)
  • coloured water (use food colouring).


Plastic cups are best for this as they will give you a good size of solid to look at. However, an ice cube tray is fine too. You might just have to look more closely!


Take photos or make sketches of what you discover and upload them to your Dojo portfolio.


Feel free to experiment with other liquids too and tell me what you discover.
