Ice Cream in a Bag

Second graders in Mrs. Hughes class experience the benefits of scientific exploration!

The second graders at Sardis Elementary enjoyed the grand finale to their science and writing units on matter.  During an experiment, students had the opportunity to watch as a liquid transformed into a solid right before their eyes! Students were each given a baggie full of vanilla, half & half, and sugar.  Then, that baggie was placed in a bigger bag full of ice and salt.  The last step to their experiment required lots of shaking.  Students wrote about this activity in a scientific format including their question, hypothesis, procedure, results and conclusion.  It’s safe to say that the final conclusion was very enjoyable for everyone!
