Is melting endothermic or exothermic?

Things that are melting are taking on heat, endothermic

Would freezing be the same?

No, of course not. If melting is endothermic, then freezing must be exothermic. Believe it or not, and I know it sounds goofy, freezing water to ice is an exothermic process.
