You Scream I Scream...

... We all scream for ice cream.
Did you know that July is National Ice Cream Month? Did you know that July 15th is national Ice Cream Day? Ronald Reagan signed the proclamation in 1984 and that just gives me one more reason why he is one of the greatest presidents in the history of the United States.

So... naturally this month we are doing a unit all about ice cream. I have found a treasure trove of resources for this and thought I would share the best of what I have found. There is something for everyone so if you are looking for something to do with the kids, here is a great start. Besides, it gives you an excuse to eat ice cream - you know because it's educational.
