Making butter

We have been talking a lot lately about where our food comes from. We learned that one of the many things we get from cows is butter - but how does milk turn into butter?
One of friends said " stir it with a spoon", another said "put it in the fridge" , another added " add other ingredients".
We divided the class into two groups and gave each group a jar containing cream. We had a "race" to see which group could get their cream to turn to butter first. Everyone was able to see it turn to whipped cream and then finally butter!
We made salted and unsalted. We sampled both types on crackers - yum!
Oh, and of course we learned the answer-  Shake it!
