Here is our Human Body project. What we did was we put some gelatin in the two cups. On the first cup we put meat tenderizer on the bottom and the top of gelatin. For the second cup we didn't put any meat tenderizer on, only gelatin. We waited to see what would happen. My slideshow shows my progress for the every 15 minutes. We had to see if any changes happened. I noticed that after 15 minutes our first cup with gelatin and the meat tenderizer looked like the meat tenderizer soaked into the gelatin a little bit. If you look closely at the same cup after 15 minutes one spot in the gelatin has no meat tenderizer. After 30 minutes (I didn't take the pictures) the gelatin was almost liquid. I think the meat tenderizer broke apart the gelatin and made it into a liquid. In the second cup the gelatin also got liquidy but not as much as the gelatin in the first cup. I think the meat tenderizer speed up the process of melting gelatin.

Our tour guide for our morning session was Dennis. Dennis told us different cool facts about dinosaurs like about the 5 mass extinctions.

Then he told us about all the different dinosaurs in the past.This was really important to spending a whole day off because we learned about first life on earth.
On our second part of our field trip we learned about meteorites. Our docent's name was Jim and he taught us all about meteorites. He showed us a video about all of the asteroids that were circling around our solar system. All of the scientists worked in the area where we were. It was very fun and I learned a lo
