What would have happened…?

This week we have been looking at the story of the Gingerbread man. We talked about the part when he has to cross the river on the fox’s back and how the fox tricks him into getting nearer his mouth by telling him he might get wet. We were wondering what would have happened if he had got wet? So of course, we did an experiment. 

We tested out different liquids like milk, water and golden syrup and dunked some biscuits into them to see what would happen. They all took different amounts of time to disintegrate and it was interesting to see that not all the liquids caused the biscuits to break down.
