Science Class

At school, we've been doing a science unit called Food & Nutrition. In the first lab activity, students tested the amount of fat in common foods by spreading a one-gram sample on brown paper. After two days, we observed our food samples and measured the size of the grease spots on the paper.
In our second investigation, we learned that yeast is an indicator of sugar in food. Here students tested samples of cereal to determine which cereals have the greatest and least amounts of sugar. And the low-sugar winner is...cheerios.
