Ice Cream Ice Cream, We ALL Scream for Ice Cream!

It was a rainy day today requiring a boost in our energy! We decided to make homemade ice cream! My youngest is currently using Bob Jones university for English (Grade 2). In his homework there are instructions to follow to make ice cream. The purpose of the unit is to learn how to follow instructions in a recipe and learn about the difference between a tablespoon and teaspoon.

Bob Jones is a fantastic curriculum! As a homeschool mom, I enjoy that the lessons are all laid out for you with clear, simple instructions to follow for the lesson. 

Let's get started! 
Ingredients Required for Ice Cream:
1. 1/2 Cup Milk
2. 1 Tablespoon Sugar
3. 1/4 teaspoon Vanilla
4. Large Ziplock Bag
5. Small Ziplock Bag
6. 6 Tablespoons Salt
7. Ice
8. Hand Towel

Number One:
Mix The Milk, Vanilla, Sugar in the smaller bag and seal it. 

Number Two:
Fill the Larger bag half full of ice. Also add the salt and the small bag. Seal the big bag.

Number Three:
Wrap the big bag in a towel, Shake it for 5 minutes! This can get cold!!!!
Also try and enlist your older brother to help you!

 Number 4:
Take to the little bag and wipe the water off. Eat the ice cream!!!! Enjoy!

 Share it with your Grandfather!!! Guaranteed Hugs!!

Simple Circuits

We had a blast today creating and learning about circuits. Below is a video that my oldest son made which explains what conducts electricity and how to make a simple circuit. Our experiment is taken from Bob Jones University Science Grade 4. Enjoy!
