Emma has decided that she wants to do a science fair project (individual projects are optional, they are already doing a class project). My only problem is that she had this **brilliant** idea while she was taking a bath the other night when it occurred to her that shampoo burns if it gets in your eyes but conditioner does not. I have scoured the internet trying to turn that into a topic that meets the guidelines but so far have come up with nada. This is the requirement for the topic:
Your problem or purpose has to be a testable question that leads to an experiment, not to a report or demonstration.
Any ideas or suggestions how I can help turn her idea into a 3rd grade science fair project? One of my biggest question marks is how she would test any of the theories, I mean, it isn't like she's going to purposefully put soap in her eyes to see if burns or not.
Thanks ladies, and please don't fail me now
