Science Week – Rising Sea Level Experiment

On Monday, we did an experiment about rising sea levels. We put clay in two containers as ‘land’. We put ice in the water of one container, and ice on the ‘land’ in the other container. We predicted which container we thought the sea level would rise more. We found out that the ice on top of the land melting made the sea level rise more. This is like glaciers melting in the Arctic.
