Crayola® Model Magic snowmen demonstrate understanding of the different physical forms of water.
Open a discussion with the class focused on the three forms of matter: solids, liquids, and gases. Ask students for suggestions of how to create an example of each. If possible, have students create a snow figure outdoors, or freeze ice in molds. Have students make predictions about how long will it take the snow/ice to melt. How long will it take the water to evaporate? What conditions are needed for these changes to take place?
Organize students into teams of two. Ask teams to create four or more Crayola Model Magic models: the solid form of water, intermediate melting stages, the liquid, and the scene after it evaporates (or melts into the Earth). Use Crayola Washable Markers to color any parts of the Model Magic sculpture.
Students conduct experiments with snow, ice, water, and evaporated water. Predict how long it will take for real solid water (snow sculpture or ice) to become liquid. Estimate how long it will take for liquid to evaporate. Make labels on index cards with markers. Note the current date plus each team's date and time predictions for melting and evaporating.
Display the prediction models. Compare the predictions with what happens to the snow or ice, posting photographs of actual events with model predictions.. Consider why the predictions were accurate or were not.
Using a journal format, ask students to respond to the question, "What happens when a water changes state?"
