Question

Hypothesis

Prediction

Testing

Results


Question

Question

  • The question you ask must have a concrete answer that can be found by conducting an experiment.

    Why do highway trucks pour sand on icy roads in the winter?

Return


Hypothesis

Hypothesis

  • A testable explanation that answers your question.

    I know that salt is used to melt ice and I think that sand is used for the same reason.

Return


Prediction

Prediction

  • If your hypothesis is true, what will happen when you perform your experiment?

    If my hypothesis is true, an ice cube with sand on it will melt faster than a bare ice cube.

Return


Testing

Testing

  • List the materials you use and the steps for the experiment.

  • Show the data you collect.

    Materials: Sand, ice cube, and a watch

    Steps: I sprinkled sand on one ice cube and left the other bare. I timed how long it took for each ice cube to melt.

    Data: Each cube took one hour to melt.

Return


Results

Results

  • What happened when you performed your experiment?

    My hypothesis was wrong because the sanded ice didn’t melt faster. They must use sand for a different reason.
