Do video games increase your tolerance to unpleasant cold water? Do dogs have a paw preference? These are just a few of the questions that our Fourth Graders came up with to then use the scientific method to answer their questions. Each student developed a hypothesis to pursue, created an experiment to gather data, analyzed the data, reached a conclusion and then communicated the results to the school. Do stop by the Fourth Grade classrooms to find the poster boards displaying each student's experiment and results.
A few other questions were:
- How many pennies will it take to keep the hovercraft from floating?
- What is the best temperature for growing crystals?
- Which M and M candy will be eaten the least and therefore be camouflaged the best?
