Extensions

Students can investigate the importance of chewing by repeating the experiment using a finely chopped piece of luncheon meat and comparing the outcomes of the two experiments.

Students can repeat the experiment using plant parts (such as spinach leaves or lettuce). Does the meat tenderizer break down plant material?

Students can test whether leaving the meat or plant parts in meat tenderizer for a longer time affects how much they break down.
