Default Melting Ice That is in Different Shapes

helping my daughter with this project. Saw the topic- will ice melt faster in one shape than in others. So we are melting ice that has frozen in a circle, a square, a rectangle and triangle. In our first trial with 1/2 cup water each, they all melted the same time. The next trial with 1 cup, the circle melted fastest, then the square, rectangle and triangle, at different times.
We're trying to find out what this may mean, or at least some help in getting our conclusion. We'll try this weekend with 2 cups of water for each shape.
