Hey Jammers! Did you know that August 2nd is National Ice Cream Sandwich Day?! To celebrate, you can follow the instructions in this Animal Jam Academy to make your very own ice cream! You won’t need any special tools or equipment, just a few items from around your kitchen.
This tasty treat is even more awesome because making it involves chemistry! The ice in this experiment is very important – it will help cool down the milk and help it freeze. But the ice can’t make this happen all on it’s own, which is why salt is added (just make sure you don’t get it in your ice cream!) But something super cool happens when you add salt to the ice. It actually LOWERS the freezing point, and increasing the amount of energy, or heat, it takes to melt.
Turns out the water in the bag that is formed from the melting ice is actually below freezing (32 degrees Fahrenheit!!) This super chilled water is able to suck heat away from the milk mixture faster than just ice making your tasty treat possible! Have some extra fun by taking your cool chemistry creation and smooshing it between some cookies to celebrate National Ice Cream Sandwich Day!
