Students talk about books. In this book talk lesson plan, students read Clifford and the Big Ice Cream Mess. Students then participate in a book talk and write a response regarding what went wrong in the story.
Students make ice cream. They use the experimental process to improve the ice cream working with variables in the recipes.
Students analyze earth science by creating a frozen treat in class. In this heat transfer lesson, students discuss how matter is transformed from solid to liquid and liquid to gas when energy is removed from the equation. Students conduct an experiment in which they squish a bag full of ingredients with their bare hands in order to create ice cream.
Third graders read the story "Trapped by the Ice" which is about the Antarctic adventures of Sir Ernest Shackleton. They identify, write and share examples of respect and responsibility demonstrated by the stories' characters. Students create a character trait doll about themselves. Students write ways they show respect and responsibility.
Open this lesson plan by giving a brief history of ice cream. Using liquid nitrogen to lower the temperature, preteens make their own confection. The accompanying activity sheet queries learners about freezing point, the properties of liquid nitrogen, and stabilizers. The activity sheets and the use of liquid nitrogen make this resource most appropriate for upper elementary learners during a matter unit.
Students discuss the three states of matter and how they are affected by temperature. They make ice cream in a bag while observing how temperature change affects the mixture. They discuss why some specimens froze more quickly than others and how salt affects the freezing time.
Young scholars describe the physical properties of ice and speculates on the dangers that icecaps might pose on a global scale. They then demonstrate, through a series of experiments, several physical properties of ice (ability to fracture, refreezing to other pieces of ice, melting under raised temperatures, and melting faster under pressure).
Students design and conduct experiments in order to identify the components of lake water environments that are affected by winter ice cover. They use the experiment results to propose effective human management of these ecosystems.
Students study the work of Dr. Hajo Eicken through an audio conference. They engage in a conference call with Dr. Eicken to identify how ice core research is designed and conducted. After asking Dr. Eicken questions, they record their answers and write in their field journals.
In this ice hockey activity, students complete a total of 15 multiple choice questions about ice hockey. Worksheet is labeled ESL, but is not exclusive.
High schoolers explore the formulas for volume of three-dimensional objects. They participate in various activities involving ice cream, ice cream cones, small candies, and gum balls, recording their calculations on a lab sheet.
Investigate pictographs in this math graphing instructional activity. Young learners color and cut out an ice cream cone that represents their favorite flavor. Students add their cone to the appropriate area on the pictograph. Students complete related data worksheets with a group of students. Website information about making ice cream is included.
Chemistry concepts come alive against the backdrop of the Sochi Olympic Winter Games! Here is a captivating clip to share with your chemistry kids. It teaches how the bonds in a water molecule contribute to the formation of a lattice within a chunk of ice, and how their lack of bonding at the surface provides the slipperiness that makes Olympic ice skaters really move! Pupils also learn how salt molecules are used to keep water molecules apart, preventing them from bonding to become ice. This would be a neat addition to your chemistry curriculum when covering the any of the following topics: hydrogen bonds, crystal lattices, ions, or freezing point.
Students understand the sea ice cycle and can explain its stages. In this Sea Ice lesson, students play a game to identify types of sea ice. Students answer critical thinking questions about sea ice. Students complete a sea ice worksheet.
Students identify the problems associated with building a structure on permafrost. In this physical science lesson, students investigate how heat and pressure affect the rate of ice melting. They read an article about traditional housing and write an essay that explains why the permafrost underneath the structures did not thaw.
Students investigate how salt affects the state of ice. In this ice cream making lesson plan, students change the freezing temperature by adding salt and observing the results. Students use experimentation and comparison to see how chemicals change in water.
Students compare the change in snow and ice over a 10 year period. In this environmental science instructional activity, students use the live data on the NASA site to study and compare the monthly snow and ice amounts on a map of the entire Earth. They use excel to analyze the averages.
In this reading about ice skating worksheet, learners read an informational selection, label a drawing with bold print words in context, match words with their clues, and make a chart of the types of figure skating moves and judging categories. Students write eight short answers.
Students identify individual coins and count coin combinations up to one dollar. They count money on an interactive website, print out an ice cream order sheet, and using drawing software create a picture of the ice cream that they order.
Students determine sea ice thickness, concentration, and floe size by reading egg codes. In this sea ice conditions lesson, students color code a map based on prescribed criteria and use the maps to identify changes in sea ice conditions.
