Default 2nd grade project

When you put water on sand, why does it move a little bit, but then freezes?

Default Water and sand

What do you mean by freezes? Could you clarify? Are talking about the water turning to ice?

Default 2nd grade project (reply)

This is for my son's 2nd grade science fair. This is how it was assigned. "When you put water on sand, why does it move a bit, but then freezes?" I have been struggling with the way this was worded. Im assuming that they mean why it moves then stands still. Can you help?

if it stands still. well this could be because the water is settling with the sand and then it settles down.

Default Motion

I think it's because when the water drops and hits the sand, it loses energy, therefore it can only move the water a small bit. But it depends at what hieght the water fell from and what speed the water fell at. It also might depend on the liquid. But I have to agree that the question was poorly worded.
