F. K. Sweet fourth graders explore mass

Students in Elish Mancuso’s fourth grade class at Frances K. Sweet Elementary School explore the mass of the edible portion of a banana after reading interesting and intriguing information about bananas, and making predictions. The students used balance scales to measure the whole banana, the banana peel, and then determined the percentage that was edible.¬†As a conclusion to their experiment, they¬†enjoyed banana smoothies!
