How Does Water Freeze Into Ice?
Water, or H20, is a liquid that is found all over the Earth! Water can be in different states of matter: solids, liquids, and gases. Ice is water that has been frozen into a solid. Water can be a solid! Water can be solid when the molecules in the water are packed tightly together. This usually happens when the water gets cold. When the water gets colder in nature or in a human-made freezer, the molecules of water start to move closer and closer to each other. This keeps happening until the molecules are tightly packed together and are frozen in place. That is how ice is formed in nature or inside of a freezer!
