Instructions:
 
  1. Make a snow ball.
  2. Use your hands to compact the snow as tightly as possible.
  3. Place the compacted snow ball in the freezer for thirty minutes.
  4. The snowball will be a solid chunk of ice. This chunk of ice is your very own mini glacier and simplistically mimics glacier formation. 

  

I hope you enjoyed this super quick tutorial and had fun creating your own mini glacier to investigate and explore.
