From the text book and my prediction, I think that this experiment will be shorter than the book claims. The reason for my hypothesis being this way is because we have to take in to matter that we live in Texas. Yes, it’s fall but it still feels like summer. It will be hot for most of October and humid. Since it will be warmer, the smell of the decomposing chicken will become more apparent and will attract more flies. Meaning the decomposition period will become shorter.
How I will collect this data will be to go to Mr. Cater’s classroom every other day. Take pictures of the chicken and write down any observations.
