DAY 22 CHALLENGE:
Spend [at least] 15 minutes investigating something of interest to your child. Whether its how something works, why we use certain materials or tools for things, or a simple science investigation.
Take a minutes to research it yourself, then find a why to explore it further with your child.
I decided to make a science experiment to investigate this further.
I froze some water on a sheet pan. I provided a bowl of both salt and sand. Equipped with many machines and we started testing. Without either the sand or salt, driving on the ice was slippery and the trucks were spinning out of control. We then spread some salt and sand on half of the pan each. They both helped with traction.We added the heat of a hair dryer to act as the sun to see which one made the ice melt faster. The salt clearly helped.
