Transcripts - Poppy’s glacier inquiry

  • 1. How Glacier’s freeze, & melt...
  • 2. First Dad & I put in a little bit of gravel, then dirt so that the container was half full. Then I put in some water from the tap so that the container was almost full to the top. Next I put it in the food colouring. I chose red because there was no blue & red is my favourite colour. Lastly, I put it in the freezer for 24 hours.
  • 3. The next day once my glacier was frozen, I got it out of the freezer & waited to see what would happen. I set the timer & every 10 minutes me & my dad would check on the glacier, make notes & take a photo.
  • 4. At first I looked at the glacier & thought that it looked like a big block of ice with all the brown dirt at the bottom (Mum told me that this is because the dirt & gravel are heavier than water). All the food colouring seemed to be at the very top of everything else, but some of it was drooling down the sides.
  • 5. It looks like it’s melted a lot. The top is more red. There’s a red puddle that looks like lava next to it. When I moved it, there was dirt & gravel underneath.
  • 6. As the ice is melting, the rocks & dirt are falling off. Around the sides is only dirt now! There’s a big pool of lava. The sun is melting one side faster than the other.
  • 7.  I found it interesting that even though our house was warm my glacier took a long time to melt. I think this was because there was lots of ice & bits of it were thick!
  • 8.  I learnt that glacier’s move very slowly & that they crush anything in their path. They are very dangerous because they are made up of hidden rocks. Once the ice melts the rock is left to spread out.  By Poppy McPherson
