Explain the phenomenon #1

Group answer : 

My answer : Water is a poor conductor of thermal energy, thus it convects heat slower to the ice cube, causing it not to melt. This is if I assume that the ice cube did not melt. The water only boiled at the top as convection only happens at the place where is receiving direct thermal energy from, hence water at the bottom half would not boil.
