Prediction:

Girls Girls

Boys Boys


Hypothesis: Angie’s Hypothesis: I think girls will have stronger friendship because they always share their snacks.

Who’s friendship is stronger?

Materials 1. A Treat 2. Camera


Steps: Step #1

Take a Girl or Boy and her friend(s) out at the hallways.

Step #2

Give one person in the group a treat.

Step #3

See what actions they do.


Conclusion Hypothesis: T.K.’s Hypothesis: My hypothesis was wrong because one of the girl groups didn’t share the treat. I thought that girls have stronger because they share things well. Over all of the groups, 7 groups shared the treats so I think the friendships at Chadwick are strong. Angie’s Hypothesis: My hypothesis was wrong, because one of the girl groups didn’t share their treat at all. I thought girls have stronger friendship because I am a girl and I know that girls like to share their snacks. Overall the seven groups shared their treats so I think that friendships in Chadwick are stronger than I thought.


What We Learned During the Science Project T.K.: I learned that boys and girls can fight sometimes about small problems, but on the other hand, both have strong friendships.

Angie: I learned that boys aren’t careless about their friends, and also I learned that girls fight (have a conflict) about small problems that can happen often.
