ICE CREAM SCIENCE is one of my favorite activities to do on days where instruction seems out of the question. You know those days: the last day before fall holiday, standardized testing day, etc. It’s a sneaky way to get science in on a crazy school day.
In this activity, students make delicious ice cream in a zip-top bag and explore topics such as phase changes, temperature conversions, colligative properties, and ice cream nutrition. Fat percentage calculation exercises are included.
All ages and grades will enjoy ICE CREAM SCIENCE. Just making ice cream keeps it simple for younger students. Adding the worksheet makes it appropriate for older students. I make ice cream and use the worksheet with my chemistry and physics students. They love it!
