We made ice cream again and it turned out very well. I just
wanted to put up our recipe for anyone who needs it.
1/2 cup of milk
1 tablespoon of sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
6 tablespoons of Rock salt
1 pint-size plastic baggie (1 per child)
1 gallon-size plastic baggie (1 per child)
Ice (large bag)
I had all the students line up as we put vanilla, milk, and
sugar into their pint-size bags. Then we closed those bags
and sealed them shut with masking tape. In the gallon-size
bags, I put about 2 cups of ice (filled it half way) and I
added the Rock salt on top of it. The pint-size bag went on
top of the ice and we closed the big bag.The children shook
their bags for about 5 minutes and they had ice cream (we
always have leaks so it's best to do this project outside).
I cut off the tops of the pint-size bags and the students
ate right out of the bag. We didn't use gloves this year
(the bags get very cold) but it worked out just fine
without using them.
