Hungry?

Mystery Project recently involved identifying pet foods.  Each child was given a tri-folded sheet of paper and markers.  Each rectangle on the paper was labeled with a number that corresponded to an open, unlabeled pet food container.

The children used their senses of sight and smell to make a conjecture regarding the recipient of each type of food.  After much smelling, wrinkling of noses, silly guesses, and sound ideas, they drew a picture and wrote about their thoughts for each.

Finally, we revealed the actual types of pet foods we examined.  We had wet cat food, wet dog food that looked like beef stew, and fish food.  Look for their guesses in the students portfolios.  They had some mighty interesting ideas about each type.
