Melting and Freezing of Water Lab

We predicted that the freezing water would be at -2 degrees Celsius and the melting water would be 3.5 degrees Celsius.  The actual temperature for the freezing water was -2.364 degrees Celsius.  Also, the melting water temperature was 3.268 degrees Celsius. 
This is the freezing water's progression.
This is the melting water's progression.  The temperature probe immediately froze once we stopped stirring the probe around.
Once, we put it into our warm tap water it completely melted within three minutes.  The temperature for the freezing water went down while vise versa for the melting water.
