Ice Cream Day

Science Lesson
for Ice Cream Day

The students will follow a recipe to make homemade ice cream in a bag.  They will also identify the different states of the cream in the forms of liquid and solid.




  1. Tell the students they will be making their own homemade ice cream.  In order to do this, they will need to follow a recipe.

  2. Write the recipe (ingredients only) on the chalkboard or chart paper.  Pass out the I Made Ice Cream Worksheet and have the students copy the ingredients.

  3. Write the first step on the chalkboard or chart paper and have the students complete the step.  Discuss each ingredient as it's added and whether it is a solid or liquid.  Also, when adding the salt to the ice, have a discussion on what salt does to ice (makes it melt faster.)  Continue writing the steps on the board and having the students follow them.

  4. Once the students have completed making their ice cream, they may eat it.  To finish the I Made Ice Cream Worksheet, have the students write the steps in their own words, or copy them from the board.


Other Lesson Ideas

  1. Measure out two similar amounts of ice cream.  Place one amount on a plastic tray and the other amount on a metal tray (or cookie sheet.)  Place the trays in similar places in the sun.  Have the students observe which amount melts first.  Why is this?

  2. Have a lesson on cows and the milk they provide.
