Week Beginning 2 November

Does the shape of a maple seed effect its dispersal?

We carried out the control experiment before half-term. Our next lesson is to change one of the shape variables to see if this effects how far the seed travels from the parent tree.

In other words how far does it disperse.


You can change the size of the wings, the length of the stalk but remember to attach any pieces you cut off so the weight remains the same.


Use the instruction and recording sheet to help you.

Remember to keep all the variable the same except the one you are changing.
