To wrap up the fifth grade science unit called, Changes in Matter, students at Nassakeag Elementary School conducted an investigation to identify pancake ingredients that were missing their labels. The fifth graders made pancake batter and watched how its properties changed when it cooked. They also measured and graphed changes in weight to the pancake batter, a hot pancake, and a cooled pancake. The students were challenged to use what they learned in the unit and their data to help them explain how the weight changed after cooking the batter.
