Reflection: Student Feedback Ice Cream: The Full Scoop! - Section 3: Wrap Up


Students really enjoyed making their ice cream. The students were able to discover and make connections to how various technologies can manipulate the cooling properties of matter. I did have to model how to successfully massage the zip lock bags gently enough to ensure that all parts of the mixture were being cooled without bursting the bag. It was important to ensure that the students sealed their bags completely as well prior to massaging the bags. This will prevent leaks and messy spills.
