Tales for Two Centuries:
Chapter 7--Logic Puzzle
Class Science Projects
Objective: ...use comprehension strategies,
including locating details and vocabulary to solve logic
The class chose projects for the third grade science fair. They
had already learned a lot about science fairs during the second grade
when their projects were very different. Seven kids won
ribbons. The boys that won were Tony Alessi, Chad Dawes, Brian
Lewis, Josh Buckner, and Dougie Hanks. Emily Venable and Kamiko
Osaka were the girls that won.
One of the kids showed the importance of
sunlight in bean growth. One tested dish- washing soap
to see which worked best. One grew different types of non-green
plants called molds. One kept rainfall records for five months.
One tried to prove that static electricity could be useful.
One showed that she could train an earthworm. One graphed the way
several kinds of airplanes flew. Use the judges’ notes and your
reading and logic skills to help them figure out these questions:
What project did each kid do?
2. Which place did they win?
List the winners
and their projects in the order they won.
Third-place winner, Josh, did not experiment with bubbles like Tony
2. The girl who won 7th
place did not grow molds like the first-place girl did.
3. Sixth place went to Brian Lewis’s
experiment with growing green plants.
4. Dougie’s 2nd-place experiment
made the judges’ hair stand on end and stick to a balloon.
5. Chad’s project came in one
place ahead of Brian’s project.
6. Unlike Chad, Tony did not use
paper for his project which came in just behind Josh’s.
7. Third place went to the person
who made a weather graph.
8. Neither Josh nor Kamiko
would work with earthworms.
