Ice have less mass per unit volume , and it is less dense then the water because when water solidify it becomes lighter , after solidifiying it becomes 9% less denser then its liquid state , and also ice freezes from top to botom  that is why if we put water in ice tray to solidify it first freeze on the top , to test this after 15 minutes take the tray out and press it on center you will find that the top layer freezed but inside it there is still water .
