[00:00:05.720]Exploring ice can be
[00:00:07.300]a really engaging activity for children.
[00:00:10.770]And it really gets them thinking
[00:00:12.170]about the cause and effect skills
[00:00:14.720]of what is happening to the ice
[00:00:17.220]when you act upon it.
[00:00:19.970]With radio, we explored ice in a different way
[00:00:23.820]of having things trapped inside of ice,
[00:00:27.130]and working to make
[00:00:29.650]the melting process begin.
[00:00:32.340]You can also just explore
What is it?
[00:00:34.030]with a simple plain ice,
[00:00:36.510]and outside in a warm day-
What are these things?
[00:00:39.720]and seeing how quickly
[00:00:40.626]it can melt.
[00:00:42.510]Or how in the sun
Is that ice?
[00:00:43.343]it melts faster,
[00:00:45.795]than in here
What's inside of ice?
[00:00:46.628]that they can explore
What are these?
[00:00:50.808]based on their interest or their age.
[00:00:55.030]Are they flower?
[00:00:57.160]Nope, that will pop.
[00:00:59.780]You should feel them.
[00:01:01.480](kid expressing surprise)
[00:01:04.080]What does it feel like?
[00:01:06.570]Is it cold?
[00:01:09.159]Yeah, they're frozen.
[00:01:13.123]It's starting to come out, the ice?
[00:01:18.186]Look, the water is dripping
[00:01:21.510]It must be melting.
[00:01:23.920]Oh, turn around.
[00:01:27.840]You see how it melts, when I squeeze it?
[00:01:30.840]My hands are warm.
[00:01:33.340]Oh, that's so good.
[00:01:35.640]God, all the flowers are coming out, aren't they?
[00:01:40.410]Because they're melting.
[00:01:42.610]They're coming out of the ice.
[00:01:44.884]I'm so happy that they're melting,
[00:01:45.717]That they're coming out of the ice.
