What am I

wondering?


Can a person detect which crayon is Crayola with just coloring on a sheet of paper?



Hypothesis


If a person colors with two different crayons, then I can detect which crayon is the Crayola.


What do I think will happen?


I think it would be easy to figure out which crayon is Crayola



Defining Operationally


Coloring- scribbling, doodling, shading


Materials

q A pack of Crayola crayons q A pack of off brand crayons( Rose Art) q Sheets of paper q Plastic baggies labeled A q Plastic baggies labeled B



Procedures


1. Have two different boxes of crayons (one must be Crayola)

2. Remove the wrapping on each crayon so you cannot tell the difference between them


3. Lay all the Crayola crayons in a line and have the Rose Art crayons lined up next to the Crayola line.


4. Have the Crayola line labeled A and have the Rose Art crayons labeled B


5. In the rows, match the crayons up to the closest color to the Crayola crayon (Example: pair the orange Crayola crayon with the orange Rose Art Crayon)


6. Place all the A crayons into the plastic baggies labeled A and all the B crayons into the plastic baggies labeled B


7. Place the baggies on a table.


8. Cut paper into little squares and place paper next to the A and B baggies


9. Ask the person, who is coloring, to pick two crayons of the same color, color on the paper, and say which letter is the Crayola crayon.


10.Record your results. Data Table

Claim

Just from coloring on a piece of paper, a person cannot tell whether the crayon is Crayola or not.

Explanation

From doing this experiment, I found out that a lot of people cannot tell the difference between Crayola crayons and generic crayons (Rose Art).Our evidence shows that more people actually chose the Rose Art crayon to be the Crayola crayon.Based of the data I collected, it showed that our hypothesis was not supported. This is because I thought it would be easy to detect the Crayola crayon.
