How did the rings get under the ice?

In science with Mrs. Greenham a few students wondered how the Olympic Rings were positioned under the ice during the Olympic Games. Together groups of students worked to explore different ways to make lines and rings on and under ice. Their explorations included two different experiments. One group used window crayons on a baking sheet and then poured water on top and frozen the water. The other group painted lines and rings on top of a frozen baking sheet. Once both sheets were frozen the students explored them. A few students tried using Popsicle sticks and imitated hockey in the painted ice. They discovered that as the ice melted the paint came off and went on their hands. The group that used window crayons noticed the ice was over top of the rings and the colours were very bright. The students viewed a video on how lines and designs are actually administered on ice. It is so fun learning along side these students. What do you wonder?
