Standard 2 Objective 2
1 class periods of 90 minutes each
Students will use melting snow to create a graph showing the "decay" of the snow in Frosty the Snowman. They will solve the mystery of how long Frosty has been decomposing.
90 minutes, another activity may be needed to fill some of the melting time. (maybe Frosty the Snowman on YouTube.
Students would need to have had experience graphing decay curves and know that they are based on the amount of parent element compared to daughter elements over time.
1. Students measure mass of water and snow to determine Frosty's current condition ..4
2. Students design a plan to measure the rate of snow melt in the room .4
3. Students graph the results and have enough points to see a curve .4
4. Analysis questions are correctly answered:
