The Moldy Bread Experiment

February 9, 2015

     Students in Mrs. Haines’ science class are learning the steps of the scientific process by conducting a variety of experiments.  The students tested the spread of germs and their effect on a piece of bread.  Students formed a hypothesis, researched how mold grows, set up an experiment using a control group, and analyzed their results.  We were all surprised by our results!  We are one month into the experiment, and there is no mold growing on our bread yet.  This was a totally unexpected outcome.  Students analyzed the results and made inferences as to why no mold had grown.  Will this bread be like the famed three-year-old cheeseburger from McDonalds? Stay tuned!
