L: Investigate and measure temperature using a thermometer. 

In science this week we tried to find out how quickly ice melted and if its temperature changed as it did so. 

We had:

ice cubes, and a variety of materials to wrap around the ice cubes (we used cotton wool, tin foil, and paper)

See if you can plan an experiment using the above items which allows you to investigate how quickly ice melts.

Alternatively, you could try the experiments below which involve water and a thermometer.
