To continue our work as scientist we are working on an "Apple Drying" experiment. We have three apples: whole (with skin), whole (without skin), Chopped (part skin/part not). We made predictions (which we talked about is similar to the word hypothesis that we learned last week). Each day we have been weighing the apples to see how much moisture they have lost. We are taking notes and using tools and our observation skills that are important of both scientist, historians and many others (teachers too!)! We talked a lot about how we are comparing the apple to itself and use math to help us determine which apple lost the most!
Next week each table will conduct this experiment on their own based on the fruit they picked! Here's what we have:
