So, what exactly is involved in the Carrot on a String experiment? Well, let me show you. First, let's gather our supplies:
-a vegetable peeler or small paring knife
-a large needle
First, using your paring knife or peeler, core out the top of a carrot.
This was a simple experiment to put together, and it was really fun to talk with Erik about what might happen. After discussing many possibilities (some silly, some serious), we decided to write down our hypotheses. We made a little chart with everyone's predictions and hung it on the wall next to the window. Dad came home for his lunch break right about then, so he got to put forth a theory as well.
