Wonderland has lots of different creatures living there, even mixed-up creatures! Can you design and sketch your own Wonderland mixed-up creature?

8. Liquid to Solid - Making Orange Ice Lollies

The Pengwins are going to be seeing if we can turn an orange from a solid to a liquid and maybe even back to an orange again. 


You will need:

A whole orange

A carton of orange juice

Ice cube trays

Lollypop sticks



1. Look at the orange. What do you notice about it? Do you think it is solid or liquid? Why do you think this?

2. Peel and squeeze the orange into a bowl. What do you notice now? Is it a solid or liquid?

3. Add some orange juice to your squeezed orange. Add the orange juice into your ice cube trays and put a lollipop stick into each ice cube section.

4. Put into the freezer for at least an hour.

5. Take out of the freezer. What do you notice? Is the orange juice a liquid or a solid? Why do you think that's happened?
