4th Grade Science — Nutrition and Food

This week Fourth Graders have been exploring nutrition and what exactly makes up food. Here they are seen using an iodine solution to test for the presence of starch in foods. Starch is a type of carbohydrate. Carbohydrates are the main source of energy for the body.

They then went to the garden to collect natural materials like wood, petals, rocks and dirt to test for starch as well.
