After some time the Ice cubes began to melt.

Bennett : “the ice cubes are melting”

Teacher: “ why do you think is melting?”

Bennett: I don’t know “

Jackson: “ it’s hot”

Arianna: maybe we can make more.

Gwendolyn: it’s because they were over here too long.”


This ice chalk activity is a perfect example of how artistic exploration and sensory play can often go hand in hand It’s also a great example of process vs product, what is impotrans is that we offer an activity that becomes 3 different ones; grating the chalks(fine motor, painting with the ice cubes(art and creativity) exploring and learning about melting process(science, language)

Children use fine motor skills, eye-hand coordination, language, solving problem skills,math and science and creative expression as they paint with colorful ice cubes.
