The guiding questions for this activity are,“How does ice cream freeze and why does it melt?” In this activity, students make ice cream which is a fun but messy event. While making the ice cream, they can observe a phase change of a liquid freezing and changing into a solid! The detailed science behind the activity explains the three states—solids, liquids, and gases. Before beginning this activity, we recommend you read Chapters 9 and 10 which are in this book selection.
