Experiment Title: Test of Green, Red, and Brown Pear Differences
What was the purpose of your experiment? Provide a brief description of what you were hoping to learn, discover, or study.: The goal was to learn about the differences of red, green, and brown pears using my five senses.
What was your hypothesis?: My hypotheses were:- They would feel different on the outside, but not on the inside.
– They would sound the same because they are really packed together and don’t make any sound.
– They would taste the same because they are all pears, just different colors.
– They will look different (I already saw them!)
– They will smell the same because they don’t even have a smell.
What materials did you use in your experiment? List them all.: I used:Water
My senses
Cutting Board
What procedure was followed? Provide a brief description of the steps you followed during your experiment.: Step 1: Get the pears.
Step 2: Use your five senses to test how they are different.
Step 3: Discuss what each person experienced.
Step 4: Record your results.
What were the results of your experiment?: My results were:- Touch: On the outside, brown was very different. It was hard like a rock and bumpy. Its skin was drier, rough, and hard. Green and red felt very similar, but red was a little silkier. On the inside, red was bumpy, green had small bumps, and brown had small bumps and was watery.
– They did not sound different at all (no sound).
– Brown had a apple flavor, red was less strong of a flavor and earthy, green tasted like a granny smith apple.
– They looked different on the outside. On the inside, the green and red looked the same, but brown was a little different.
– Green smelled earthy, red smelled apple-y, brown smelled like I expected a pear to smell
What is your conclusion after conducting the experiment? Was your hypothesis correct or incorrect? What did you learn?: I learned that it is fun comparing pears! I would have expected my favorite pear to be green or red, but it was actually brown.
