What would happen if there was a "Glacier" and we left it there while we poured water?
I think the ice will melt and make a bigger stream.
I think the glacier will move faster down the stream table.
I think that the glacier will melt and make a bugger puddle of water in the bowl.
*plastic cup (one hole)
Step By Step
Pour the soil in the tray
Mix soil with lifts
Prop up tray with the lifts. Place ruler and cup on tray. Put the bowl under the hole in the tray. Then place glacier on top of the mixed soil.
Pour one liter of water in the cup.
Observe the stream once you are done...ENJOY!!!!!
We are going to observe how fast the glacier moves down the stream table. Also we are going to observe how fast the glacier melts.
What are we going to keep the same
We are going to keep the ruler and the cup the same.We are not going to move the glacier with our hands.
What happened when we did our experiment was the water made an indention in the soil the and glacier melted but it didn't move at all not even a millimeter.The ice melted quickly and made a stream. Nothing probably changed because the tray might not have been steep enough.
