help with "cooking chemistry" project

lidi b | Jan 10, 2012 12:37 PM

My 6 year old was given an assignment to come up with a science project where you choose a recipe (with exact measurements, which I took to mean baking, but I'm happy to be dissuaded), make the recipe exactly, then make it again, changing something (adding more of an ingredient, using less or removing an ingredient, adding a different ingredient entirely), guessing what would happen b/c of the change, and seeing if they're right. I want the project to produce an obvious result, and was thinking muffins--some right, some with no baking powder. Anybody have a fun (and easy--remember, he's SIX) idea for a project???
