Diaper Dilemma

We had a Diaper Dilemma in 5th grade! Our budding 5th grade scientists are learning about the steps to the scientific method and were recently tasked with the job to investigate and report on the most absorbent diaper. Over a span of a week, the children collaborated with their classmates as they researched and tested each of the three brands of diapers chosen. After they gathered their data, the results were in…there was a tie for first place between Up and Up and Pampers! Both classes wrapped up the activity by discussing what variables are and identifying those used in our activity and determining ways to ensure that data remains valid and reliable in future class experiments.
