This scientific question is, does the different kind of gum increase or decrease your concentration? This question was chose because many people in the world always are looking for some tips on what helps them concentrate, and chewing gum is a very easy way to help improve concentration. The Independent Variable is the type of gum, the Control Group is Bubble Gum, the Experimental Group is the Spearmint, the Dependent Variable is test scores, the Constant Variables are same timed test, same timer, and same brand of gum. The hypothesis for this science fair project is if spearmint gum is chewed then the person's concentration will be increased. This hypothesis was picked because spearmint gum is minty and the scientist thought that maybe mint impacted the brain the most.
Our criteria: no high-fructose corn syrup; no more than 20 g of sugar; no artificial colors like Red 40 or Yellow 5; and a glass of the fizzy stuff had to be less than 100 calories.” In the end soda should be allowed in all middle schools. Some reason it should be is kids need more of a choice at school and soda is not the cause of all the bad stuff.I always wonder, why can adults have soda at work but middle schoolers can’t have soda at school? That is unfair and that is why I think middle schoolers should be able to have soda at
The findings were obvious: the children who ate the marshmallow early were more likely to have behavioral problems. Those who did not eat the marshmallow, interestingly, did not show these traits and succeeded in school. “The difference between a child who could only wait thirty seconds and a child who could wait fifteen minutes was the the high-delayer had an SAT-score that was, on average, two hundred and ten points higher than the kid who couldn’t wait”(Source
Forty million people a day view Instagram stories, 79% of teenagers use Snapchat once a day, and 51% use it at least eleven times a day. In fact, teenagers use on average five screens a day (Patel, “10 Tips”). The use of social media makes teenagers happier and cures their boredom after school. However, problems arise when young people find all their satisfaction on social media. All this time spent on social media and whether you get enough “likes” could result in a bad outcome and cause poor health.
This study compares the food and nutrient intake from children eating school lunches with children eating packed lunches. The results were that children that took a packed lunch were consuming double the amount of sugar and 50% more sodium and saturated fat than children who ate school lunches. Packed lunches did provide more calcium, iron, and fruit for the children that school lunches. This scholarly source was written by three authors. They are qualified to write about this topic and complete the study.
By the end of the freshman year, the same students were called back to reassess their weight and body fat. The findings were conclusive with the author’s original hypothesis. Graham and Louis 2010 state “We found no significant differences on initial EAT scores, body-image scores, participants’ reported or recorded weight at the beginning of the year or percentage of body fat between the 49 follow-up subjects and the 32 that did not follow up” (p.172). The authors provide statistical data in the form of graphs to quantify these findings. As the article comes to the end, the authors present a cause and effect theory that categorizes The Freshman 15 from a different perspective.
For instance, the Craig, Thompson, Washington, and Potter (2004) evaluated the performance of 65 African American second through fifth graders on the Gray Oral Reading Test (GORT); although most of the students used AAVE features in their oral language, the younger participants used AAVE more frequently than the older children. The research team found that children using AAVE have decreased accuracy and reading rate but no deficits in comprehension (Craig, Thompson, Washington, & Potter, 2004). As a result, although they are able to comprehend the testing material, African American children often do poorly on standardized tests due to the dialectal differences. However, many teachers and schools use a child’s performance on standardized tests to evaluate their development and identify learning disorders, and many African American children are often determined to have a learning disability although their poor performance on standardized tests are a result of their dialect. Conversely, a similar study evaluated 217 African American kindergarten through second graders on their familiarity with SAE instead of their use of AAVE.
Kids only do that because they don't want to be caught throwing it away. So really there is no reason to not chew gum in class. Students should be able to chew gum in school because it helps kids focus and it can make your teeth stronger. One reason gum chewing is good for students is it helps them focus. According to chewing gum facts, they explain how chewing gum helps you do better on your work
I intend to use this source to support my analyses of the marketing strategies that Wrigley used to promote chewing gum and expand its markets in the United States and all over the world. Feigenbaum, Harvey. "America 's Cultural Challenge Abroad." Political Science Quarterly (Academy of Political Science) 126.1 (2011): 107-29. Print This article focuses on how the United States’
The closer families live to parks and playgrounds the greater overall exercise they got. With shorter travel time, the more time spent outside. As of 2005, policy 312 was passed to garauntee 60 minutes per week of physical education or exercise programs for schools. One problem with this policy is that schools do not have to have equipment to facilitate exercise. It was found that 6-13% of the vigorous activity that kids need is met through school recess/ physical education program.
Also, many pictures from around the 1950’s show how children also would participate in sit-ins by going in day after day waiting to be served (10). This shows how kids did not leave all the work to the adults. They came together as one and worked to end segregation, so they could have a better life. Although, Oklahoma is not located where the major civil right movement area, Oklahomans helped contribute by: enforcing integration through court rulings, different groups challenging the separate but equal law, and civil disobedience. Even though most people do not associate Oklahoma with the civil rights movement Oklahomans had their own Martin Luther Kind Jr, and Rosa Parks, Clara Luper and Ada Sipuel.
Own Whirligig Experiment: The teacher will say, “Now that we have done one experiment together, you and your group members are going to do another one based on a slip of paper I give you. The slip of paper will have an independent variable. Your group will create 3 whirligigs, just like the last experiment, based on this independent variable. An example would be if your slip of paper says the overall size, your group will make three whirligigs that are different sizes and test them. You can use the materials on your trays.
In addition to facts, Huffington also focuses on a study performed by researchers from Harvard and the University of Virginia; their experiment hypothesized whether more people would choose to have fifteen minutes alone, without phones or laptops, or if they 'd rather undergo an electric shock. "A whopping 67 percent of men chose the electric shock. I 'm very happy to say that only 25 percent of women chose the shock." Huffington proves how our generation 's lives orbit around digital media. "In fact most of us actually know more about the state of our smartphones than we do about the state of ourselves."
head down on desk, looking around the room, etc). Data was taken on these dimensions every 30 seconds. In addition, a different student in the classroom was chosen at random every 2 ½ minutes and coded along the same behavioral criteria. This was done to as a way to compare Jackson’s behavior to that of the other students in the classroom. Overall, Jackson was observed to be on task and engaged in the lesson a little less than the rest of the class (91.84 % engagement vs. 100 % engagement of the other students).
Jacobson.L (2016). Coding’s finest hour. School Library Journal,62(1),11. The article, “Coding’s Finest Hour” by Linda Jacobson is an overview of relatively new initiative, Hour of Code, which aims to introduce elementary children to computer coding. Hour of Code is in its third year and encourages schools to introduce coding to all students, including the very young.
