Kindergarten make Ice Cream
A wide range of science concepts may be learned through cooking, but the logistics can make it difficult to cook in a classroom. Not a problem for kindergarten teacher Theresa Barnhizer who recently taught her preschoolers how to make ice cream using milk, sugar, ice and zip lock bags.
According to experts, making ice cream with preschoolers teaches about how properties of matter can change without having to deal with the potential dangers associated with cooking with a group of children. While an ice cream maker can be an effective tool, making individual portions in a bag is both fun and educational.
