Last week fourth-graders at Burkhart spent a lot of time learning the vocabulary of science. Words like hypothesis, observation, and conclusion are extremely important for young scientists to know. Rather than just reading about it in a book, they are experiencing these words in real experiments. In this experiment, the students made a hypothesis about which soda would shoot up the farthest when Mint Mentos were added. They made observations and drew a conclusion. What a fun time!
