Funky Freezing

Year 4 freezing and melting investigations

We were trying to find out if all liquids could freeze.  We had 4 different types of liquid.  We used orange juice, water, milk and oil.  We put them in the same freezer to freeze.  We made it a fair test because we changed the liquids but kept the time, bowls, amount and place the same.  We found out that the oil did not freeze at the same temperature as the other liquids.  From this, we also set up a new investigation.  Do the  solids (frozen liquid) melt at the same rate? (time).  What do you think happened?
