Every April the girls school holds a Science Fair. It is always the week of Earth Day. They have worm races, the 5th grade builds rockets and launch them and all students complete a project.
Caeli's research was on gravity and it's affect on object. She worked on it for five weeks and completed a detailed Science notebook. To test her experiment, she gathered four balls (two small - a tennis ball and a ping-pong ball and two large balls - a basketball and a volley ball.)
She dropped all ball from half way up the stairs and the top of the stairs. She discovered that weight did not matter, size did. The two small balls fell at the same speed and the two large balls fell at the same speed; even though the basketball weighed twice as much as the volley ball.
She completed a board with all her data on it and presented an oral presentation. She earned the full 150 points for her project.
This was Kianna's first Science Fair project. First grade can choose any experiment as long as they follow the scientific method.
Kianna chose to test if flowers need water to live. She filled one glass with water and food coloring. The other glass was empty. She checked the flowers every few hours.
One turned blue as the water went up the stem, the other flower died without water.
She received 100 points for her project.
