Answer A
Do you enjoy the taste of ice cream? You know you
can buy your favorite ice cream in a store. Did
you also know that it is fun and easy to prepare
your own ice cream at home? This is one way to do
Shake, Shake, Shake!
Passage begins on the next slide.
 2 First, ask a grownup to help. One of the
supplies he or she will probably need to get for
you is rock salt. This is not the kind of salt
you put on your food. Using it is an important
step in helping your ice cream become
cold. 3 There are other things you will need to
gather. You will need two strong plastic bags.
They should have a closing that works like a
zipper. You will need one large (gallon) bag and
one small (quart) bag. Get some ice cubes, too.
You will also need measuring cups and spoons,
salt, whipping cream, sugar, and vanilla
flavoring. The vanilla flavoring smells
wonderful, but it doesn't taste good by itself.
You will also need some paper towels to clean up
any messes as you go along. 4 Once you have all
your supplies, you will be ready to begin making
your ice cream. First, put ice cubes into the
large bag. Fill the bag a little more than
halfway. Measure out 1/4 cup of rock salt, and
pour it over the ice cubes in the bag. Close the
bag, and set it aside until later. 5 Next,
measure out 1/2 cup of whipping cream and pour it
into the small bag. Add 1 tablespoon of sugar and
1/4 teaspoon of the vanilla extract to the cream.
If you like, you can also add little pieces of
candy like peppermint or chocolate chips. Tightly
close the small bag. Shake it until everything
seems well mixed. 6 Now, place the small bag
inside the large bag containing the ice. Close
the large bag. Shake, shake, shake, and shake
some more! If you get tired, ask for help. It is
more fun if you have someone sharing the job of
shaking the bag with you. After about 5 minutes
of shaking, the ice-cream mixture will start to
thicken. If you can't wait, you can eat it when
it is like a thick milkshake. If you are patient,
though, shake the bag some more, and the ice
cream will get harder. You might need to shake
the bag for 15 or 20 minutes. Once the mixture
has hardened, you can enjoy a bowl of ice cream
or an ice-cream cone. Any way you eat it, it's so
good! 7 Now that you know how to make this
delicious treat, invite some friends over for an
ice-cream party. You might ask each person to
bring his or her favorite topping to share.
Everyone can help with the shaking. Everyone will
enjoy eating something they helped to make!
Which of the following belongs in the blank?
A. Pour rock salt over ice cubes in bag
B. Add pieces of candy to the one-gallon bag
C. Place whipping cream in the one-quart bag
D. Fill bag a little more than halfway
