It has been a great experience working with this group of students to design experiments of their choosing and follow them through from beginning to end.  These experiments all followed the scientific method and tested for the changed variables.

Mrs. Heald and I are proud of the amount of effort the children put into their work and the outcomes of all the experiments.  Thanks to all the students and families for making all the meetings count!
