Year 6 Icebergs

8th January 2019
Mini Icebergs
As part of their introduction to their new topic ‘Frozen Kingdom’, children in Year 6 studied their own mini icebergs. During the investigation, which replicated real life icebergs on a small scale, the children thought about why ice bergs float, how air becomes trapped in icebergs and what happens as an iceberg melts. They also investigated how salt effects the melting of ice.
