What will happen the old woman’s house in the story ‘Hansel and Gretal’ if it rained?

16th Apr 2018

As the old woman’s house is made of sweets we tested gummy bears in various liquids to see what would happen the sweets. We talked about needing to keep the test fair by using the same type of sweet and the same amount of solution in each cup. We were amazed by what happened. Gelatine makes our sweets chewy so when put in liquid, the sweets expanded and got weaker. We decided a house made of sweets wouldn’t be as good as we thought 😊🍪🍭
