Making ice-cream in science!

Date: 3rd Feb 2017 @ 5:58pm

Hello everyone,

This week in science, children made ice-cream by pouring sweetened and flavoured milk into a small bag.  This bag then went into a larger bag which contained ice cubes and salt.  Children then massaged the ice and salt mixture around the milk mixture for about ten minutes until it turned into a solid.  Children then reflected on how the liquid turned into a solid by cooling using the correct scientific vocabulary.

Can anyone work out why we added salt to the ice in our investigation?
