Step 1 observe
Step 1: Observe

  • Before you start to do, you need to observe! This is critical when it comes to creating your hypothesis.

  • Observe with 4 senses (eyes, ears, nose, touch). We do not taste anything in science!


Your paper should look like…

Observation of unfortunate death

Observations:

Things to look for
Things to look for…

  • What type of shoe prints are there?

  • What is the spacing of the prints?

  • What is around the pig?

  • Is there anything else that you notice?

  • Do you smell anything?


-Look at your observations and decide what you think happened to the pig.

-You must site evidence from your observations!

-Complete sentences, please. 3 sentence minimum.


3 sentence format happened to the pig.

I think…

I think this because I observed…


Step 2 hypothesis
Step 2: Hypothesis happened to the pig.

  • Educated guess based on observations.

  • It does not have to be in the form of “if…then…”

  • I want the hypothesis to be a complete sentence explaining what you think will happen during the experiment based on observations made.

  • Hypothesis sorting activity


Your paper should look like this… happened to the pig.

Hypothesis or nah?

Yes No

Do not glue until you have been checked off!!!!!!


Step 3 create the experiment
Step 3: Create the experiment happened to the pig.

  • You will need the process of how you will test your hypothesis

  • You will need an independent variable, a dependent, and a control before you create the process of the experiement


Types of variables
Types of Variables happened to the pig.

  • Independent Variable: What YOU change/control to test your hypothesis

  • Dependent Variable: What changes BECAUSE OF the independent variable

  • Control: What stays the same throughout the entire experiment


Your paper should look like…. happened to the pig.
