Slow Progress is Still Progress

" This past August, I received a Russian tortoise from my parents as a pet. Her name is Shelly and I love taking care of her. Sometimes Shelly moves fast and sometimes she moves slow. That made me wonder what surfaces Shelly moves the quickest or slowest on. Understanding which surfaces Shelly moves fast or slow over can be used as an example for tortoises in the wild to easily escape from predators. The purpose of my experiment is to test how fast or slow Shelly can move on different surfaces. The results of this experiment can help other tortoise owners."

One thought on “Slow Progress is Still Progress

  1. Nice job! You built a great Shelly chute and your trials created a significant number of data points, which is important.
