This activity allows learners to explore the scientific method in an open-ended fashion, using the 4-P Approach to Science Inquiry developed by the University of Wisconsin, Beloit. Learners observe and describe what happens when a piece of jellied toast is dropped off a table. From these observations, learners pose a question concerning which side of the jellied toast will land on the floor. A prediction is formulated that might answer the question. Learners then design experiments to probe the prediction. The experiments are completed, data collected and conclusions drawn. Finally, learners write a report to persuade others of the validity of their experimental conclusions.
