Our class has also been working with the Scientific method to find ways to answer some questions. The last two weeks of September were spent studying camouflage in nature. We asked the question: Does camouflage work? We researched different types of camouflage, and why animals might need camouflage. We then set up an experiment where we used green straws to represent green caterpillars, and we used red straws to represent red caterpillars. We used green paper shreds to represent grass. We timed ourselves to see how long it took to find green straws in green grass. Then we timed ourselves to see how long it took to find red straws in green grass. The results even surprised us. However, when we changed our experiment around, our results mirrored our hypothesis. All of this time we are spending with the scientific method and working on experiments is helping us to get ready for our science fair in November.
