This is a classic activity that kids always love to experience! I am always surprised that so few of them have ever done it before! We usually do this lab while we are studying pioneers in social studies, but it can be done anytime of the year! I get mason jars from Amazon (they are pretty cheap). (about $1 each) We display our Butter Research Projects outside the classroom!
This packet contains:
- Butter Making Direction sheet
- Butter Tasting Lab Sheet
- The Science Behind Butter Making Sheet
- Butter Tasting Graph
- How I Made Butter... Writing Directions Activity
- Note Home with Directions
- Butter Research Projects
This packet is designed with intermediate students in mind, but I am sure it can be used with younger kids as well!
Happy Shaking (get ready to do a lot of shaking)!
