What gum blows the biggest bubble? Science Fair Project!

78

I picked it because I like candy and because it is fun. The best in my opinion was bubble yum. My favorite part was seeing really bib bubbles.

Last year I did, do pop rocks and soda explode your stomach. That one also evolves candy. They were both really fun.

Here’s a look at my project:

Question/Problem

What brand of bubble gum makes the biggest bubbles?

Hypothesis:

I think the gum with the highest sugar content would blow the biggest bubble.  In this experiment, that would be Bubblicious gum.

Materials for Which brand of bubble gum makes the biggest bubble? Science Fair Project.

Procedures:

  1. Start with one brand of gum.
  2. Each person chews that same brand of gum for 10 minutes.
  3. Begin blowing bubbles.
  4. Blow 5 bubbles with one piece of gum.
  5. Measure each bubble using the ruler and paperclip.  This will give you the bubble diameter in centimeters.
  6. Write down the diameter of each bubble
  7. Repeat steps 1-6 for each brand of gum.
  8. After collecting all your data find your average.  You find it by adding your data for that brand. Then divide by 5.

Conclusion:

My hypothesis was correct.  The gum with the higher grams of sugar made the largest bubbles.  We also found the gum with the higher sugar content was easier to chew as well as made bigger bubbles.

The gum with the highest sugar (6g) and the biggest bubbles (6.8cm) was Bubblicious.

Our Marco Island Vacation

1

I went on another trip to Marco Island. We packed up all of our stuff and drove about 5 hours. But it was worth it. When I got there I unpacked and went to sleep cause it was 10:30.

The next day I went in the pool and unpacked the rest of my stuff. On the back of the house there was a canal that you can fish in. So we started a family fishing contest.  We fished and caught some snapper. I caught one we could have saved to eat,  but it flopped out of my dad’s hands. A couple days later I went deep sea fishing, but I’ll talk more about that later.

The next day we went on a pontoon boat. All we caught were whitings. The next day just relaxed. After that day my dad threw me in the pool with my pajama’s. Then in a I went kayaking. It was cool cause your really close to the water. After, me and my mom went in the pool again. Then we packed up and left back to go home.  It was a great vacation.

Goodbye 5th Grade!

1

At the beginning of the year I was kinda scared of all the work I thought 5th grade would bring. But actually I didn’t have that much work.

I had awesome teachers. My reading teacher was Ms.Franklin she likes Disney. My math teacher was Mr.Anderson he likes super hero’s. My science/social studies teacher was Mrs.Pettingill she likes chocolate and coffee.

My favorite part of the year was our Sea World field trip. The park wasn’t busy and we got to ride all of the roller-coasters.

I think it was the 3rd last day of school there was an Awards Ceremony. I got seven different awards. I got an award for leadership, PE, a behavior award, citizenship, safety patrol, music, and math. The 2nd to last day of school was my play. It was Annie. I was a servant and it was really fun. The last day of school was really awesome. There was music, games, and food. But it is kinda sad because I knew some 8th graders and now they are leaving. But all in the end it was fun.
