Ice Sculptures: Collect different shaped ice blocks. The children will build or sculpt with them. Place the ice in the water table (no water). Give the children small containers of salt. They sprinkle salt on the ice block and place a smaller block on top of where they have shaken the salt (the salt causes the ice to melt the ice blocks stick together. They continue until all the ice is one unit. For more about this activity see Squish, Sort, Paint, and Build pages 200-201. There is also a section on ice activities in Everyday Discoveries, pages 133-143.
