Ice Cream and Science? How Does That Work?

On Friday September 14, second grade teachers and students traveled to Freezing Moo - not just for ice cream but for a great science lesson too!

Freezing Moo is an ice cream chain that specializes in making Thai Fried Ice Cream Rolls. According to www.freezingmoo.com, “Ice cream rolls are hand made ice cream desserts made with milk and poured over an iced grill. You can mix different fruit and other toppings to make your treat that much better.”

So what kind of science is involved in that? Well, it’s a great lesson in the three states of matter - solid, liquid, and gas. At the start of the process, the batter is in liquid form. Once it is on the iced grill, the liquid goes through a physical change and becomes a solid. Second grade teacher Katheryn Sidor explained that her students enjoyed learning how the ice cream rolls are made. The workers demonstrated that when the liquid ice cream was cooled down on the plates, it hardened into a delicious solid they could eat!

And although students learned a lot of science, they also got to enjoy some of Freezing Moo’s special ice cream rolls! There were oohs and ahhs all around! Second grade student Dawson Zeller commented, “I love how they rolled the ice cream for us to eat and put on any toppings we wanted!”

Thanks to Freezing Moo for teaching WCES second graders about science and the art of ice cream rolls!
