Today, Ms. Erickson went to all the Woodland Kindergartens to weigh the tadpoles. In each classroom, five tadpoles were scooped out of the tank for measuring. They went into a cup of water, that had been fared, on a scale. All tadpoles were measured in grams. The students were fascinated with the tadpoles being weighed. In Mrs. Cohen’s room, everyone predicted the two tadpoles that reside alone in a tank would weigh more because they are much more developed than the main tank. To all of our surprise, they were not much larger than the other tadpoles. One student scientist hypothesized that since the tail was starting to disappear, that they would weigh less because there was less of their body. Take a look at the graph to see what you notice about the tadpoles at Woodland School.
