What do you think will happen when the heat increases? Students
will be questioned to make predictions.
After the ice melts to water students will again be asked to make
predictions on what will happen to the water as the heat increases.
Will the water remain the same as the heat increases? Ask
specific students to explain.
Does anyone use the kettle at home? Students asked to relate
this situation to prior knowledge and experiences with boiling water.
What happens as water boils? Students guided to discuss steam.
