How far can you stretch a jelly worm before it snaps?

Well isn't that what everyone has been asking themselves? We decided to investigate this today and practice our science skills in setting up and carrying out a fair test. We made predicitons as to whether we thought a normal jelly worm (room temperature), a cold jelly worm (frozen) or a warm jelly worm (heated) would stretch the furthest. Then we tested the three jelly worms and recorded our results. To make the test fair we used a lot of team work to make sure that our measurements were correct. We discovered that.......ah that would be too easy, you will have to ask one of the children what they found out!
