To wrap up our study T and K had to do a writing assignment. I let them choose if they wanted to write a story, poem, or a scientific report. K, my 7-year-old daughter chose to write a poem. T, my 8-year-old son chose to write a scientific report.
Mold Detective Report by T
We started our experiment on May 5th. We first saw mold on May 11th. The mold grew green and white. The mold feels hard. Today is May 18th and I see lots and lots of green mold. I see more green mold than white mold.
The Old Bread by K
I'm a little piece of bread
and now I'm growing mold.
I have white and green mold.
Now I'm getting hard and old.
And if someone eats me they will get sick.
I'm getting older every moment.
Don't eat me.
I don't like this.
Why does mold grow?
It gross because the bread is old!
