  1. Mollie A to an A+
    I can include more detail when giving information and drawing diagrams, next time I want to put more effort into the safety column. I could also do a good copy, that is typed up.

    Grayson A- to an A
    I can add more detail and more accurate information into my conclusion, I can also label my bread with more detail. I am also going to put more time and effort into writing and drawing neater, also adding for potential risks in.

  2. My Conclushion –

    The experiment was about finding the best place where mould does not grow, around the classroom and wet area. The question we had to answer was: where is the best place to store bread where it won’t go mouldy? My Hypothesis stated that I thought the bread in the cupboard would grow the most mould, because it doesn’t get fresh air often and it doesn’t change temperature. The data That I recorded was that the bread that was in the fridge grew no mould at all, I think that ocered because it doesn’t change temperature and It got air quite often. The bread that was on the windowsill got mouldy a lot because it was very wet when I put it in the bag and it couldn’t breath through that bag, so it couldn’t dry. The bread that was in the cupboard was extremely mouldy because that was the most wetest bread and we put it straight into the bag so again so it couldn’t breath. I kept the breads I all the same places because it wouldn’t be true data, and it would be harder to record the results. Therefor I think the best place to store bread so it doesn’t get mouldy is in the fridge.

  3. I could improve from an A to an A+ by asking a question and an objective at the start. This will help as at the end in my conclusion I can refer to this question and see if I achieved and answered that question. I would know if I achieved my goal and purpose at the end of the experiment as we would have the results. I could also improve by actually predicting what will happen during the experiment, this will also give something to elaborate on in my conclusion and it will also tell me that I was correct or incorrect. If I was incorrect it meant that I learnt something and that the experiment was all the more worth it.

  4. To conclude our mould experiment for the best place where Mould won’t grow in the class room or the wet area. We thought that the mould would grow where ever it was adventully. Our predictions were wrong because some of our bread didn’t get mould during those seven days, only some of them got mould. Our bread got half mouldy and 1 got no mould and the others had not much mould. The one in the freezer had no mould but had little bit of frost and ice on them. Another piece of bread got half mouldy and it was just in a dark spot so was the other. When I looked at the others bread they had heaps of mould on them because they had soaked them in water. There wasn’t any patter during the experiment or any problems during the experiment. The best spot to avoid is by keeping in a could place with out the bread being damp.

  5. I got a B- How I could improve my work. I could improve my work by adding more detail to my conclusion like this 👆 (up above) and spreading my work out more.

  6. I will improve from a b to an a by improving my conclusion.
    Improved conclusion.
    To conclude my group and I success found 3 valid spots to store our bread for the seven day experiment. My group made a hypothesis that none of our groups bread will grow mould through out the seven day experiment. The data was clear how no mould grew on the bread and that our hypothesis was correct. Keeping bread in the freezer will stop mould from growing. There was no patterns or in crease or decrease of mould growth the was no mould grow that all. There was issues in the freezer my groups bread became,mushy and started to break apart.we kept the size of the bread the same through out all the bags but changed the location and if the bread was wet, toasted or normal. The best inviroments for storing bread are, on the fan, in a freezer and in a cub oars.

  7. My conclusion:
    The experiment was about finding the best place to store bread were it won’t grow mould.The results of my experiment weren’t very exiting 2 grow mould but only at the end a it was only a little bit.My hypnosis was that the freezer bread would grow the least amount, My hypothesis was wrong because the bread in the freezer grow a little bit of mould.The wet area bread grow the most mould it had a green patch in the lower right hand corner, the bread in the freezer on the 5 day had a big patch of brown mould in the right hand corner going up to th crust and the bread in the fridge had no mould at the end of 7 days.The bread in the freezer had mould on the 5th day but it disappeared by the 7th day. With my results the best place to store bread so it won’t grow mould is the fridge because it grow no mould and was less stale than the others

  8. I could improve my science grade from an A to an A+ by first asking a question, then predict what is going to happen, then do the experiment. This will help the teacher to understand more about the question I’m answering and I can provide more information about the experiment’s results, as well as justifying whether my prediction was right or wrong and if it was wrong, why it was wrong.

  9. I can improve my work from an A- to an A by putting more detail in the safety so you get an better explanation to easily be more detailed and improve my grade. I could put more detail into the steps I did and make it easier to understand and follow them as the example from Sam George had very detailed steps and were clear on what he did. I need to not forget the results paragraph so that would definitely make it better. In the conclusion I could of put more detail to pose of what I did and did not do wrong and how I would improve.

  10. So the best place to put your bread in is the fridge because there is a very low temperature to store food so it does not get rotten and get mould on it and also is the fridge has almost no light for the mould to grow in it except fridge mould but that’s another mould. The fridge has no moisture for mould to start growing in it. Mould needs dim light, moisture and warm air but in the fridge there is no moisture, dim light and warm air so the best place to put your bread is the fridge not the window or the cupboard because there is a lot of moisture in the air and it is warm and has dim light. The window has sun light warm air moisture in the air. Best place is the fridge.

  11. I can improve my work from an A- to an A by putting more detail in the safety so you get an better explanation to easily be more detailed and improve my grade. I could put more detail into the steps I did and make it easier to understand and follow them as the example from Sam George had very detailed steps and were clear on what he did. I need to not forget the results paragraph so that would definitely make it better. In the conclusion I could of put more detail to pose of what I did and did not do wrong and how I would improve..

  12. @Erich Good work – think about adding: Therefore the best environment for James not to have mould on his bread would be to place it in the fridge.

  13. The Conclusion
    My group and I have looked at our results from the experiment and have concluded that, we have learnt that mould only grows in certain environments and those environments are dark places, quiet places and muggy places. We think the bread will be better put in the freezer because it will keep in all the freshenss and it will last so much longer. Mould does not grow in cold freezing temperatures. Only one of our breads got a bit of white fluffy mould on it and the bread was in room temperature, hanging in higher part of the room. That was good that only one bread got mouldy because the aim was to find environments where you can’t grow mould. During the experiment on day 7 it started to go mouldy and on day 10 it went even mouldy.. thats what we think about mould

  14. Marcus how to improve grade: I can improve my grade by making my work neater, better set out and having better spelling.

    Catty Rory how to improve grade: I got a C and I wont a B so i am going to improve my effort and spelling so I get a better grade.

  15. Improved conclusion
    We are trying to find the best place to put bread so that we do not grow mould. I predicted that the freezer is the best spot to put your bread so that is does not go mouldy. my hypothesis was correct the freezer was the best place to store the bread so it does not go mouldy.the bread In the cupboard got the most mould the bread in the fridge had no mould but it did get very soggy so you would not like to eat it. Bread did not have any mould on it and it was not soggy.there was relation ships in the bread beacouse it is the same size and the same type of bread. When we wake cuting the bread one of the corners on the bread got ripped of on all of the bread.

  16. Improved Conclusion
    We had to find an environment to stop mould from growing. My group and I predicted the freezer would be the best spot because we were thinking of a could spot so no mould can get to the bread because it dies in cool temperature as it says online with lots of research. When we put bag three on top of the fan, we thought it would get really mouldy but didn’t. Why didn’t bag three get hardly any mould? Mould doesn’t grow in high areas because the temperature is much cooler up high than down low. So we stuck with our prediction being in the cold. We stared having problems with the bread in the freezer, the bread was getting mushy. So we let the freezer do the work by freezing the bread and forming the shape again. The freezer is the best environment for the bread to go because you can leave it in the freezer for almost for ever.

  17. @Abbey and Sammy – for your ending; link back to your hypothesis and make the statement about the environment.

  18. The Conclusion
    My group and I have looked at our results from the experiment and have concluded that, we have learnt that mould only grows in certain environments and those environments are dark places, quiet places and muggy places. We think the bread will be better put in the freezer because it will keep in all the freshenss and it will last so much longer. Mould does not grow in cold freezing temperatures. Only one of our breads got a bit of white fluffy mould on it and the bread was in room temperature, hanging in higher part of the room. That was good that only one bread got mouldy because the aim was to find environments where you can’t grow mould. During the experiment on day 7 it started to go mouldy and on day 10 it went even mouldy.
    Therefore the best environment not to grow mould is in the feezer and in cold places

  19. I got a B for my work, to improve my grade to an A I need to create a more accurate graph and Improve my conclusion a lot like the one above.

  20. I got a B for since. What I can do to improve the mark is put more detail in my since and put a better graph in

  21. I got a C as my grade what I need to do is spread out my work, put boxes around my diagrams, work on spelling, put more detail and use a ruler.

  22. My group chose the best places for our bread not to get mouldy, and we found that mould only grows in certain environments such as, wet, dark, moist, confined and warm enviroments. The best places included, the non working fan, that bread was EB’s bread and we changed the temperature. Then there was the one in the cupboard, (JF’s bread), we toasted that bread and it was in the dark. Finally there was the one in the freezer, (BP’s bread), and we wet it, that one worked well the most it didn’t get a spot of mould on it which was really good. EB’s bread only had a few yellow spots speckled, and it was on the fan for 10 days! So that was a good achievement. JF’s bread was still looking toasted and some bits of toasted bread were falling off. BP’s bread was crumpled but there was no mould and when we took it out of the frezzer and left it there for a while it went all wet and soggy. Our group chose the best places for our bread to not get mouldy, our group all agrees that the best spot for, no mould is, the frezzer.

  23. Science Experiment

    Jared, Kyle and I did a science experiment on mould, First, we cut the bread into a 10×10 square, then secondly we put it into zip – lock bags and tried to figure out the best place to store mould. We stored jared’s in the freezer, kyle’s behind the cupboard and lastly mine in the cupboard. Then after experimenting for three days, jared’s bread in the freezer was completely clean, it was cold and fresh, Kyle’s bread, behind the cupboard was slightly mouldy, started to develop yellow spots round the corners, Erin’s bread, inside the cupboard, hugely started to develop mould, one quarter of the bread was covered in mould, black, orange and Grey spots in three small patches / areas. On the fifth day, Jared’s bread was still at its usual state clean and fresh, Kyle’s bread was covered in mould at the bottom half, black and grey spotted areas, Erin’s bread, half of my bread is covered with this infectious mould, orange, brown, grey and black. On the last day, seventh day, kyles bread is halfway mouldy, Jared’s bread hasn’t changed and my bread is covered in this horrible infectious mould. Therefore, the perfect environment to store bread / food has to be the freezer as Jared’s bread did not change a bit, it’s fresh, clean and would be lovely to eat.

  24. Jake- D to B
    I could have improved by putting more detail and effort into my conclusion .
    IMPROVED CONCLUSION
    ——————————————————————
    At the start of the experiment;I hypothesised that we would grow mould on the bread located on the fan, that hypothesis was correct but I did not hypothesise that the bread located in the freezer would become crippled, so my hypothesis was both correct and incorrect. Over a period of seven days, one slice of bread that was located in the fridge had not developed mould, a slice located in the freezer became crippled, and a slice on a fan became mouldy. The slice with mould on it developed mould two days before the last and seventh day.  The slice in the freezer became crippled only on the final day of the experiment. The slice located in the fridge ( A.K.A. My slice) did not develop any mould on itself at all during the the seven days. The data provided numerous information with the results and provides scientific evidence that my hypothesis was indeed correct, so I accept my hypothesis. The relationships in this experiment are temporal- the element of time, environmental- the effect of the surroundings, and biology- the effect of mould. There were no errors encountered in this experiment. There was a trend were the bread on the fan appeared to have no mould on it on the fifth day but there was mould.

  25. To improve my grade for science :

    • Detailed information
    • Spread work out
    • Predictions
    • Ask questions
    • detailed diagram

  26. q1

    I do not have interest in science because I find it boring. I find that it is too long and it takes too long to learn. I found that the mould experiment was sluggish and I lost my interest by day two. Maybe next time I could use time laps to monitor my bread.

  27. q3

    I do not like science because I like to work at a fast pace. Writing reports and paragraphs is not my strong suit I would rather record my answer. I sort of liked looking at the bread watching the mould grow but it was still too slow.

  28. q4

    The conclusion is the end of the experiment. It is mostly the results and you analysing it. You are also supposed to look back at your hypothesis and compare it to your results.
