Step 3: Write a Problem and Hypothesis


  • What do you think will happen?
  • Make a prediction using observations, past knowledge and research.

  • Use complete sentences.

  • Search in books, encyclopedias, magazines, the internet and other sources for information.
  • Write facts about your topic.
  • List all of your references – write down each website that you use.
step 5 materials and procedure
Step 5: Materials and Procedure
  • What materials will you use to complete your experiment?
  • Make sure you only choose materials that you can get!
  • What steps will you follow to test your hypothesis?
  • BE SPECIFIC! Label your steps using 1, 2, 3, and so on.
  • Would someone else be able to follow your directions?
  • Are there any safety concerns?
step 6 experiment and results
Step 6: Experiment and Results
  • Be sure to display your data in an organized manner. Use a table or chart to help you show your results. Don’t forget to label!
  • Include enough data to prove or disprove your hypothesis.
  • Write down any observations you made during your experiment.
  • Draw pictures of your experiment.
  • Take photos of the experiment and yourself performing the experiment.
step 7 draw conclusions
Step 7: Draw Conclusions
  • What do your data and observations tell you?
  • What happened during your experiment?
  • What did you find out?
  • Was your hypothesis proven or rejected?
  • What might have gone wrong, if anything?
