Year 6 have conducted an experiment to investigate the growth of micro-organisms.
In what conditions would bread mould the fastest?
We began with placing three slices of bread in three different areas and observed the changes over two weeks.
Please complete the following questions.
- What was your prediciton? (In which conditions did you think the mould would grow best in?)
- What changes did you observe over the few weeks? (Sight, smell, texture)
- In what condition did the least amount of mould develop? Explain why.
- In which condition did the most amount of mould develop? Explain why.
- To conclude, how would you prevent mould from developing on your bread and food at home?
