Was the smallest tortoise the fastest?

We worked as a class to plan a simple test using our Science dog called Testing Tim. We discussed what we were going to find out, how we were going to do it and what we would need.

We decided that we wanted to investigate whether the largest tortoises were the fastest or whether the smallest tortoises were the fastest. We decided to prepare a race track and enticed the tortoises to race towards the fresh salad waiting for them at the other end. We are continuing with our races this afternoon but so far our biggest tortoise has come first! We shall fill you in on our results next week!
