2) Light brown skin, long eyelashes, round face, straight brown hair, light blue eyes, dimples.

3a) The coin flip is an accurate representation of the 50/50 chance that your child will carry either the mother or the fathers traits.

b) it represents real life because all children have a 50/50 chance of picking up traits and for each feature of the child we had a 50/50 chance of getting them. It is not accurate however because when using the coin we each had to pick a side heads or tails. In real life there are no heads and tales and we cannot decide which features from who our child will have.

c) most peoples prejudice was a unibrow, face shape, chin shape, and mouth shape. I think these prejudices have always been around usually in any day and age people found a unibrow or cleft chin unattractive or undesirable, people havent seem to be able to get rid of these prejudices over time and they still occur today.


Tinfoil boat experiment science 10

summary: we had to create a tinfoil boat using a 5 by 6 peice of tinfoil, 2 small marshmallows, 2 toothpicks, and 1 peice of tape. The challenge was to see which groups boat could hold the most pennies in a bowl of water without sinking.

Hypothesis:  our boat will be able to hold 40-50 pennies without sinking, if we make the sides of our boat strong then the water will not be able to flow in easily.

conlusion: our boat ended up holding 48 pennies after sinking. We came in second place. The strong sides of out boat definitely helped the stability and stopped water from flowing in.
