Everyone loves ice cream, right? (If you don’t, I’ll take your portion.) Ice cream is a delicious summer treat, but it also has its roots in farming. In this months agriculture-based homeschool lesson, we will trace the origins of ice cream, from the cow to the freezer. We’ll also learn about the science of ice cream.
The lesson and activities below are most appropriate for preschool through 2nd grade, but there’s lots of great information for all ages. Grab a cone, a sundae, or a banana split, and let’s learn!
