In cycle I, only seven children managed to reach the beginning to develop (MB) stage, while six children were still not sufficiently developed (BB). This relates to mentioning the tools and materials for making ice cream, explaining their function, and carrying out the experiment correctly. In addition, of the 10 children tested, 5 successfully reached the Beginning to Develop (MB) stage due to the accuracy of the ice cream making procedure and their ability to articulate the experimental findings, while the other 8 children remained at the No stage.
