Project title: Ice Cream Party Subject/topic areas: History, Math, Science, English, Business Technology Timeframe: Grade Level: 4 weeks 4th grade Brief Summary: The class consists of 4th graders, 9 males and 12 females. There is a mix of high and low learners, but no IEP students. For this project, the students will work in groups of 3 or 4 (3 groups of 3 and 3 groups of 4). At the beginning of the unit, the students will be put into these groups, using a counting method . Each group will be assigned a different ice cream brand: Ben and Jerry’s, Turkey Hill, Breyers, Edy’s, Haagen Dazs, and Baskin Robbins. In order to assign these groups, the students will pick out of an ice cream tub. These six brands were chosen because they are most relatable to the students, according to a poll the class took the week before the unit started. As our introductory to the ice-cream project, students will learn about not only the history of ice cream, but the history of their assigned ice-cream brand, as well. This particular portion will take place in our social studies /history class periods. Students will cooperatively work together to develop a set of questions (minimum of three) that they would like to research about their ice- cream brand. In addition to their own questions, below in detail, the students will research the following about each brand: History of chosen brand Founders Dates First flavor made, premier flavors, secret ingredient? Location of factory/corporate offices, etc. History of ice cream: how, where, when, and why ice-cream was invented. The students will also be learning different content in relation to ice cream throughout their other subjects, as well. They will learn how to substitute ingredients, as well as convert volume measurements. Students will learn how different tools can be used to measure the different ingredients (cups, spoons, etc.). These objectives will be achieved during both science and math periods. Specifically, during math, while we are learning conversions and fractions and measurements, the students will make their own ice cream, following directions using measurements they will have to convert. This will help them put into practice the different measurement techniques they have learned.We will also go over the three states of matter and relate it to the substance of ice cream during class discussion. During our english and science classes, we will learn how to correctly read nutrition labels, the different ingredients used in ice cream, and finally different advertising methods. These three categories will be specific to each groups’ ice cream brand. By observing the brand’s nutrition label, students will learn the different

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
