Hello~

You can mircowave a marshmallow at different tempertures and see what happens. Make A Chart of what happened. Make sure to take pictures. This is not a research project. This is a Scientific Method Project. REMEMBER: DONT'T SET THE MIRCOWAVE TIMER HIGHER THAN 1 MIN! DO SECONDS AND ALSO HAVE A ADULT SUPERVISE!!

Salty water and eggs

When I was in 6th grade I did and experiment. We were tring to know how much salt do you need for an egg to float. To be honest, that's the easiest project EVER! you just put 2 cups of water: one with NO salt an one FULL of salt you put the eggs inside and the one with salt floats. and that's all. EASY 100!
