Lulu M. Stevens Elementary Kindergarten- Mr. Villa April 11, 2013

PROBLEM: We are trying want to find out which apple has more seeds.

HYPOTHESIS: If we take three kinds of apples and count their seeds, then we think that the Granny Smith Apple will have more seeds because it is a green apple.

HYPOTHESIS: This is our graph of our Hypothesis.

VARIABLE: CONTROL: Gala Apple Red Delicious Apple Granny Smith Apple
We used three variety of apples, Gala, Granny Smith, and Red Delicious. Everything else stayed the same: washing and cutting the apples, removing and counting the seeds, and gluing and comparing our results. Gala Apple Granny Smith Apple Red Delicious Apple

MATERIALS: 5 Gala Apples 5 Red Delicious Apples 5 Granny Smith Apples
3 Ten-Frame Templates Graph Paper 3 Paper trays 3 small plastic containers Paper towels Glue Spoons

PROCEDURE: 1.Wash each apple so it will be clean.
2. An adult uses a knife to cut each apple and remove its core. 3. Use a spoon and/or fingers to remove each seed. 4. Put the seed in the container so it will not get lost.

PROCEDURE: 5. Glue each seed into a ten frame.
6. Compare the results of each variety of apple. Gala: 10 seeds Red Delicious: 9 seeds Granny Smith: 26 seeds

RESULTS/DATA: The Granny Smith Apple had more seeds than the Gala or Red Delicious variety. Gala: 10 seeds Red Delicious: 9 seeds Granny Smith: 26 seeds

CONCLUSION: The majority of our classmates who chose the Granny Smith Apple proved their hypothesis correctly: the Granny Smith Apple did in fact have more seeds than the Gala and Red Delicious Apples.
