WES Students Enjoy Ice Painting Science

Rosann Tatti’s and Mari Soriano’s third-grade classes at Wellington Elementary School recently conducted a science experiment while using their artistic skills at the same time. They were studying a unit on matter when the students got an opportunity to paint with frozen paint. The third-graders then went on to watch their artwork transform into something else as the heat from the sun and friction caused the paint to melt their creations. They observed how the heat from the sun evaporated the water and left the paint.
