We are working on the properties of matter. We investigated the properties of liquids and we used Cheerios to show how molecule look in the different states of matter.

We worked on the procedures of conducting experiments using the scientific method. We did a five day experiment weighing whole, peeled, and chopped apples. We made hypotheses about which apple would lose the most water. We documented the weight each day of each apple, used calculators to determine weight loss, and made a bar and line graph to show our conclusion.
