Popsicle Project

By Juliana, Ava and Tessa

Tessa, Ava and Juliana are giving you an inside scoop on a science project in 5th grade all about insulating an ice cube (they don't use a popsicle, they use an ice cube!)
The whole idea fo the project is to add good insulators to a container to keep the ice cube from melting. You work in a group to accomplish this goal. Some good insulators we use are:


  • batting
  • cotton balls
  • packing peanuts
  • duct tape
  • styrofoam
  • bubble wrap
  • news paper
  • tin foil
