Ice Cream Roasters by: aalex,ethan,evan,ezra,isabelle

Our testable question is How does changing the flavor of ice cream effect how fast it melts. Our Hypothesis is that vanilla is going to melt faster because it has nothing in it. Our Independent variable was changing the flavor, and our dependent variable was how fast it will melt.
Our constant was the brand of ice cream. Materials: Dryers Mint chocolate chip, Dryers rocky road, Dryers Vanilla, Dryers Chocolate, Dryers Caramel, 1 spoon, 1 kitchen scale, 1 stop watch, 5 bowels.
Our procedure was Step 1 was scoop out the ice cream, 2 start the timer, 3 let the ice cream melt and stop the stopwatch when the ice cream is completely melted, 4 record the results, 5 repeat steps 1-4 with the different flavors.

These are our results:

Caramel: 58.44 minutes

vanilla: 1 hour, 6 minutes

mint chocolate chip: 1 hour, 13 minutes

Chocolate: 1 hour, 18 minutes

Rocky road:1 hour, 30 minutes

In conclusion our hypothesis was wrong because we thought the vanilla would melt faster because there was nothing in the ice cream. What we do next time? We would probably start at the beginning of the day because we did not have enough time to watch it melt and record the time.
