SCROLL DOWN FOR ICE CREAM IN A BAGGIE EXPERIMENT  





     

   
     

1 tablespoon sugar

½ cup milk, cream, or half and half

¼ teaspoon vanilla extract (or other flavoring)

6 tablespoons salt

Enough ice to fill the gallon-sized bag halfway

1 gallon-sized Ziploc bag

1 pint-sized Ziploc bag

Ordinary table salt will work, but salt that has larger crystals, such as kosher salt or rock salt, will work much better. Mix the salt around in the ice and set aside.

Make sure the pint bag gets buried in the ice. Seal the gallon bag. Shake the bags vigorously for five minutes. You might want to use a towel to hold them, since they will be very cold and slippery from condensation.

Tips:

  • Milk will provide a less rich, lower calorie ice cream, while using heavy cream will have the opposite effect.
  • This method will make a small amount of ice cream, about enough for two people to enjoy. Experimenting with other methods can allow you to 

  • make more. One version uses two coffee cans of differing sizes instead of plastic bags.
  • Flavor combinations are almost limitless. Chocolate syrup is a basic option, while various flavor extracts available in your grocery store's baking section can lead to more exotic variations. Try combining mint extract with chocolate, or adding small chocolate chips.

Science Fair Research Paper

Due ​TomorrowJanuary 22nd
It should be paragraphs including general information about the topic they chose.  It should NOT include anything about the actual experiment itself.  So, for example, if a child were to do a project on which soil is best to grow corn,  the child would have to look up online AND in actual books to find general information about different types of soil and how does corn grow and put that information together, plus on a separate page, a bibliography(see packet)to form 1 paper-It should be typed and saved onto your computer so errors can be corrected when they receive their papers back.
They have until classroom presentations in April to correct their papers, add the typed up experiment(following the scientific method(see the packet) and a nice cover..

The children will be finding articles, once a month, about Science, Health or Technology in actual newspapers.  They will read and summarize them.

We will be doing many labs and practices for the NY State Exam.  The written part will be Monday June 6th.  The date for the performance part of the exam has not been determined as of yet, but will be about 1 week before the written part.


Below is the link to find the practice state exams online.  We will be doing them in class and at home.
