NO PREP PRINTABLES! High interest topic! Super interesting & informative informational text passage that explains why & how ice cream is a complex substance (It is a foamy emulsion made possible by freezing-point depression!). Students will summarize central ideas in a fun ice cream cone graphic organizer. Then they will integrate a visual -- a recipe card for how to make homemade 5-minute ice cream. Perfect for getting students to integrate information presented quantitatively, visually, and in words (CCSS RI.7 and RST.6-8.7). Then, they will have to cite the text to support analysis (CCSS RI.1).
Can be used in Language Arts or in science as a "Literacy in Science" lesson.
