Ice Cream in a Bag This is SOOO easy… and delicious! In a small Ziplock bag, put: 1/2 C. half and half (milk works too) 1 Tbps. sugar 1 tsp. vanilla Insert that bag into a larger, one gallon Ziplock filled with ice and salt. Shake the bag for five minutes. Kids love that part! Then, remove the smaller bag which should have turned into ice cream. I did this in elem school and have been looking every where for it!
Animals adapting to winter activity. I think this is a great hands on activity to help the students understand what an adaptation really is. Have the students stick their hand in a bucket of ice water, then when it gets too cold have them put on a rubber glove and try again. They will realize it does not hurt as much. Then you can explain how this is an "adaptation"
