Just in case you needed an excuse to indulge your sweet tooth, July is National Ice Cream Month! There are plenty of learning opportunities to go along with ice cream, too!
- Ice Cream: The Full Scoop: This Gail Gibbons book is a great way to learn about the history of ice cream and how it’s made.
- Take a Tour: If you have the time, you can take a tour of the Braum’s plant and see how ice cream is made. Make sure you call ahead to schedule your tour!
- Ice Cream in a Bag: You don’t have to have any fancy equipment to make your own ice cream. We have used this recipe we got from an event at the Moore Public Library several years ago many times—it’s fun and easy!
- Ice Cream Unit Study: If you want to learn even more, you can use this free unit study from Homeschool Share!
- Ice Cream Shop: Set up your own playdough ice cream shop using these cute printables from Spell Outloud.
- Ice Cream Art: Subscribe to Hodgepodge and get a free Ice Cream Sundae Chalk Pastel tutorial!
Happy learning—eat a scoop for me!
