Extra questions

|

The questions below will extend the investigation and provide extra discussion on this investigation.

1. How could you change the magic ducks back to their original colours?

2. Is this experiment a fair test?

3. How might you find how quick the colour changed happened to the ducks?

4. Do you think the temperature of the warm water is important in how fast the ducks change colour? (explain)
