Table of Contents
1: Question
Does music help a plant grow?
Does adding salt to water make it boil slower?
Does food coloring affect the taste of cake?
What brand of laundry detergent works best on ketchup stains?
Will adding baking soda to cat litter eliminate the smell?
2: Hypothesis
If I add food coloring to cake, then the taste will not be affected
If I play music to plants, then they will grow more than ones that did not have music
If I add salt to water, then it will boil slower than fresh water
3. Design and Conduct
-4 cake mixes and
listed ingredients
-Red, green, and blue
food coloring
-4 baking dishes
-Measuring cups/spoons
Make all four cake mixes in separate batches.
Leave 1 batch of batter alone. Add 20 drops of red food coloring to one batch, 20 drops of green to another, and 20 drops of blue to the last.
Bake cakes in separate pans
Have at least 5 people taste all three cakes blindfolded. Ask them which ones they thought had food coloring and if any tasted different. Record data.
4. Analyze Data
Cake Type
Number of people who tasted a difference
5. Conclusion
The hypothesis that if food coloring was added to cake then the taste would not be affected was incorrect. Only two people said the plain cake tasted different, whereas 5 people said the green cake tasted different, 4 people said the red cake tasted different, and 3 people said the blue cake tasted different. Green food coloring affected the taste the most, while blue affected it the least.
6. Share Data
News Flash: Green food coloring makes cake taste different
New study shows green food coloring affects taste of cake.

Bar graphs show amounts or frequencies of something. The example graph shows the preference of sports for eighth grade girls and boys. 39 boys and 18 girls chose basketball as their favorite, 35 boys and 15 girls chose badminton, and 30 boys and 10 girls chose volleyball
Bar graphs show change over time. They are commonly used to show precipitation, temperature, speed, etc. over time. The example shows rainfall amounts for two cities.

Formed from HEAT and PRESSURE.
Can be
(layered in sheets) or

(Not layered)
Formed from melting and cooling cooling of mineral material
INtrusive igneous
formed INside a volcano. Larger crystals

Extrusive igneous:

formed outside a volcano. Smaller crystals
Formed by
of larger sediments
Divergent Boundary
Convergent Boundary
Transform Boundary
Not the book
Pulling apart of crust
Creates new crust
Seafloor Spreading: oceanic plates move apart and new ocean floor is built by cooling lava
Continental Rift Valley: forms where 2 continental plates pull apart
Plates push together
2: Oceanic to Oceanic
One oceanic plate is subducted under another oceanic plate
Forms a deep ocean trench and volcanic island arch
1: Oceanic to Continental
Oceanic crust is subducted under continental crust.
Forms a deep ocean trench and continental volcanic arc
Subducted = pulled under
3: Continental to Continental
Continental crust collides with continental crust
Forms Mountains
3 Types:
Oceanic to Continental
Oceanic to Oceanic
Continental to Continental
Plates rub against each other, creating a fault.
Ex: San Andres Fault
-1,800 miles thick

-Temperatures range from 1600 degrees Fahrenheit at the top to 4000 degrees Fahrenheit at the bottom

-Made of melted rock
-Outermost layer of the Earth

-About 25 miles thick under continents

-3-5 miles thick under oceans

-Broken into tectonic plates

-Plates float on the mantle
Outer Core
-Begins 1,800 miles below the surface

-1,400 miles deep

-Temperatures range from 4000 degrees F to 9000 degrees F

-All materials are in a liquid state
Can be
The cycle of destruction and formation for the 3 major rock types
Theory of plate tectonics:
Explains the formation and movement of the tectonic plates which make up Earth's crust
Continental drift hypothesis:
states that the continents had once been joined in a single supercontinent (Pangaea) and began to break apart 200 million years ago to form present day land masses
Inner Core
-Begins 4000 miles below the crust

-Temperatures as high as 9000 degrees F

-Solid due to high pressure
Tropo = change
Closest to Earth
Weather occurs in this layer
Temperature increases with height
Strato = spread out
Contains the ozone layer, which absorbs UV rays from the sun
Where airplanes fly on long distance flights
Meso = middle
Coldest temperatures in the atmosphere
Meteors burn up due to friction
Thermo = temperature
2 sub-layers:
Exosphere: contains satellites
Ionosphere: contains auroras
Warm front
Warm air goes up and over cold air
Cold Front
Cold air forces warm air out
Occluded Front
Warm air mass is cut off from the ground by 2 cold air masses
Stationary Front
2 air masses meet and neither move
An intense tropical low pressure area with winds starting at 75mph.
middle, calm are of a hurricane (falling pressure
Eye Wall:
surrounds the eye. Most violent winds in the storm

Earth's orbit is elliptical
One revolution around the sun takes 365.25 days
One rotation around Earth's axis takes 24 hours, or 1 day
1. Planets orbit the sun in an ellipse
2. Planets move fastest when they are closest to the sun in their orbit due to the sun's gravitational pull
3. Planets move slowest when they are furthest from the sun in their orbit
Hottest area of the sun
Made of plasma
Fueled by nuclear fusion
Hydrogen atoms are fused to make helium atoms
Radiation Zone
Energy is transported through electromagnetic radiation
Convection Zone
Cooler temperature than the radiation zone
Mass movement of plasma
Coolest area of the sun
Considered the surface of the sun
Appears yellow in color
2169 kg. of CO2 a year
Majority of CO2 usage comes from traveling to school and watching television.
Slightly over average of 2 tons
How does your ecological footprint relate to global warming?
Carbon in the atmosphere holds radiation from the sun in, causing Earth to get warmer.
