Heavy Ice Writing Assignment
You are to write a story about a new invention - water ice that sinks when frozen. The story should address these ideas:
- The molecular nature of the change needed to make water ice sink rather than float.
- The benefits to mankind.
- The effects on human society.
- The effects on the natural world.
Here's the twist: If your first name has an odd number of letters you are biased in favor of the invention. If you have an even number of letters you are opposed to the heavy ice being used.
Your story should be about 500 words or about 3/4 of a type written page. Write the story in your journal. You will be asked to read it to the class on _________.
