Ice Cream Day

Math Lesson
for Ice Cream Day

The students will define "single", "double", "triple" and "quadruple."  They will also complete math equations using the above terms.




  1. Draw 4 ice cream cones on the chalkboard or chart paper.  One should be a single scoop, one a double, one a triple, and one a quadruple.

  2. Ask the students to name the type of scoop for each drawing.  Write the word below the matching cone.  

  3. Pass out the Ice Cream Math Worksheet and have the students complete the worksheet individually, or as a class, depending on ability. 


Other Lesson Ideas

  1. Have a lesson on multiplication.  Have the students cut out 4 circles (to be scoops of ice cream.)  They should also cut a triangle out to be the cone.  Instruct the students to create a single dip ice cream cone.  Using their single dip ice cream cone and small manipulatives such as beans, chocolate chips, etc., the students will practice their Ones Times Table.  To do this instruct the students to place one bean on the single scoop of ice cream.  This represents the equation 1 x 1 = 1 (one group of one equals one.)  Continue in this manner until the students grasp the 1 times table.  Next, have the students create a double dip ice cream cone.  Instruct them to place 1 bean on each scoop.  This represents the equation 2 x 1 = 2 (two groups of one equals 2.)  Continue by having them place 2 beans on each scoop representing the equation 2 x 2 = 4.  This process may be continued through the 4 times tables, or whatever is appropriate for the ability of the students.

  2. Have a lesson on 3-dimensional shapes using an ice cream cone (for the cone shape) and a scoop of ice cream (for the sphere shape) as a starting point.

  3. Have the students create a graph of their favorite flavor of ice cream.
