Introduction:

We are going to figure out which of the fruits (pear, peach, banana) the cockroaches eat more. If in the future we want to find out if its by the kind of flavor or how sweet it is?
Nosotras vamos a mostrarles cual de las tres frutas es que las cucarachas comen mas (pera, durazno, guineo.)

Hypothesis

We think that the cockroaches will eat all the banana. The roaches might not eat all the pear and the peach. They might leave a little bit of pear and peach.
Nosotras creemos que las cucarachas van a comer mas el guineo. Tal vez las cucarachas no se van a comer toda la pera y el durazno. Tal vez ellos van a dejar un poco de cada fruta.


Procedure

In how many hours will take for the cockroaches to eat the fruits?
En cuantas horas las cucarachas se van a comer las frutas?
  • First we are going to take the banana, peach, and pear out to weight them.
  • Primero nosotras vamos tomar el guineo, durazno, y la pera para pesarlos.
  • The fruits are going to have the same weight.
  • Las frutas van a tener el mismo peso.
  • After we weight the fruits we're going to put it into the box.
  • Despues que pesemos las frutas los vamos a poner adentro de la caja.
  • The fruits are going to be locate it horizontal in the small log.
  • Las frutas van a estar colocadas horizontal en un tronco chiquito.
  • We will write the time we put the fruits in and the time we take it out.
  • Nosotras vamos a escribir la hora en que pusimos las frutas adentro, y la hora que lo sacamos de la caja.
  • Before we put in the fruits we're going to take a picture, and after we take out the fruits we're going to take another picture to compare them. However we can weight them to see which fruit they ate more.
  • Antes de que pongamos las frutas adentro vamos a tomar fotos, y despues de que saquemos las frutas vamos a tomar otra foto para comparalos. Ademas podemos pesarlos para ver cual de las tres frutas comieron mas.
  • After we weight the fruits we are going to do a data to see how the weight of the fruits change.
  • Despues de que pesemos las frutas, vamos a hacer una tabla para ver como fue cambiando el peso de las frutas.

Conclusion:

The cockroaches prefer the banana over the peach and the pear. The cockroaches ate 41 grams of the banana, 37 grams of the peach, and 27 grams of the pear. They ate the fruits for 2 hours and 13 minutes but they did not finished. The cockroaches did not eat all the fruits, because we began with 71 grams and when we took out the fruits they had different reduce weights. Our thought was that they would eat most the banana, and we were right. The banana lost more weight than the pear and the peach.

Las cucarachas prefirieron el guineo en vez del durazno y la pera. Las cucarachas comieron 41 gramos del guineo, 37 gramos del durazno, y 27 gramos de la pera. Ellos comieron por 2 horas y 13 minutos pero ellos no se terminaron las frutas. Las cucarachas no se comieron todas las frutas, porque cuando pusimos las frutas pesaban 71 gramos y cuando sacamos las frutas de la caja tenian diferente peso. Nosotras pensamos que ellos ivan a comer mas el guineo, y nosotras teniamos la razon. El guineo pesaba menos que la pera y el durazno.
