Best of Show!

For 4th Grade you HAVE to do a Science Fair Project, so I chose the following:

Can you tell someone's sex by just looking at their feet?

I took a picture of 17 different pairs of feet and put them in a book.

Then I asked 24 different people to look through the pictures and fill out an answer sheet with either male or female for each page. The highest score was a tie between 2 nine year old boys. They only got 4 wrong which worked out to 76% correct---C grade.

The lowest score was 29%... my Dad scored a whopping 35%!

Feet #1 are....
Feet #15 are ...

Can you guess?
They are both female!

I really didn't care about the Science Fair this year and don't really like science, so I was really suprised when I went back in the room and saw my board with a "Best of Show" Ribbon!!! Wow! I couldn't believe it! Each grade only was awarded 2 ribbons and I was one of them for the whole 4th Grade!!

My mom, Grandma Worthington, Grandma Beach, Aunt Erin, Aunt Haley, Cousin, Thomas, Ella & Aaron all came to support me! Thanks!

Can you guess the sexes of these feet?

My mom googled the word feet and this picture came up. It is a picture by Sarah Ortega. Mom E-mailed Sarah and got her permission to use the photo and she told us the sexes of the feet. What would you guess???
