Dinosaur ice balloons

26th June 2018

Last week, we put small plastic dinosaurs into balloons which we then filled with water and put into the freezer.  Building on our previous work with ice balloons, today we challenged the children to work out the fastest way to get the dinosaurs out.  Some chose to place their dinosaur balloons in the hot sun, some used spoons to chip away at the ice, some melted them in their hands and others threw them at the wall or floor to smash the ice. The children estimated that it would take just five minutes for the balloons to met in this hot sun, and they weren’t far off with that prediction!
