Investigating fat in foods

Form 4 are studying teeth and healthy eating in Science.

Form 4 are studying teeth and healthy eating in Science and have been looking at the importance of eating a balanced diet.

This week they sorted food into different categories and investigated which foods contain fat.

They did this by placing different foods and drinks on paper and observing which ones left a stain on the paper. They realised they needed to wait to see if the stain dried out because it may have been water rather than fat.
