‘Can gummy bears grow?’ We posed this question and asked our Year 2 children if they could find out the answer. Some children suggested stretching them and this made them grow a little. We decided we were going to put them into different liquids to see if this made them grow. We used our ruler to measure how tall the gummy bears were before they went in the liquids – they were 2cm. We then put them into different liquids and left them overnight. We discovered that normal water helped the gummy bears to grow to nearly 3cm!
