Project Research Research  Your  Topic   Spend  some  =me  learning  more  about  your  topic.  Use  reliable  Internet  sources,   books  from  the  library,  your  science  book,  or  other  resources.  Not  only  do  you   want  to  be  an  expert  on  your  topic,  but  you  want  to  teach  others  about  your   topic.       Science  Terms  -­‐  locate  at  least  3  key  science  words  related  to  your  topic.  Your   science  book  is  an  excellent  place  to  find  these.  Make  sure  that  the  words  you   choose  are  directly  related  to  your  topic.  Provide  a  defini=on  of  each  key  word  IN   YOUR  OWN  WORDS.

Project Hypothesis State  Your  Hypothesis     Based  on  your  research,  decide  what  you  think  the  outcome  of  the  project  will  be   and  make  a  good  guess  as  to  what  you  think  the  answer  to  your  ques=on  will  be.   Also  explain  WHY  you  think  that  will  be  the  outcome.  Remember,  it  is  ok  if  you   don't  have  the  right  answer;  that  is  how  scien=sts  make  discoveries.  Make  sure   that  your  hypothesis  is  wriIen  in  a  complete  sentence.       Start  by  lis=ng  some  possible  outcomes  or  answers  to  your  ques=on.                                 Decide  which  outcome  is  most  likely.  This  will  be  your  hypothesis.  Clearly  write   your  hypothesis  in  complete  sentences.       _____________________________________________________________________     _____________________________________________________________________     _____________________________________________________________________     _____________________________________________________________________     _____________________________________________________________________     Copyright © by Nasreen Wahid.

Project Experiment Design  Your  Experiment   Clearly  write  out  the  procedure  you  are  going  to  follow.  Remember  that  your   experiment  needs  to  follow  the  scien=fic  process  and  that  you  need  to  have  one   variable  that  you  are  going  to  change  (independent  variable).  There  are  three   variables  in  a  scien=fic  experiment:  independent,  dependent,  and  controlled.     The  independent  variable  is  the  one,  and  only  one,  variable  you  will  change.     The  dependent  variables  are  those  being  observed  and  measured  throughout  the   experiment.     The  controlled  variables  are  those  that  remain  constant  and  allows  you,  the   scien=st,  to  understand  how  the  experiment  would  react  under  normal   circumstances.     Independent  Variable:     _____________________________________________________________________     Dependent  Variables:     _____________________________________________________________________     _____________________________________________________________________     _____________________________________________________________________     _____________________________________________________________________     Controlled  Variables:     _____________________________________________________________________     _____________________________________________________________________     _____________________________________________________________________     _____________________________________________________________________     Copyright © by Nasreen Wahid.

Project Experiment Materials   List  all  materials  needed  to  complete  the  experiment.  Be  specific  about  type,  size,   brand,  etc.

Project Experiment Procedure   Write  out  each  step  of  your  experiment.  Remember  to  number  each  step  and   clearly  explain  what  to  do.  Other  scien=sts  should  be  able  to  follow  the  same   steps  and  get  similar  results.     _____________________________________________________________________     _____________________________________________________________________     _____________________________________________________________________     _____________________________________________________________________     _____________________________________________________________________     _____________________________________________________________________     _____________________________________________________________________     _____________________________________________________________________     _____________________________________________________________________     _____________________________________________________________________     _____________________________________________________________________     _____________________________________________________________________     _____________________________________________________________________     _____________________________________________________________________     _____________________________________________________________________     _____________________________________________________________________   Copyright © by Nasreen Wahid.

Project Experiment Conduct  experiment     Scien=sts  conduct  an  experiment  many  =mes  in  order  to  get  the  most  accurate   data,  so  make  sure  you  also  conduct  your  experiment  mul=ple  =mes.  During  your   experiment  you  need  to  collect  data  and  make  observa=ons.  You  will  record   these  in  your  Experiment  Log.  A^er  you  have  completed  the  experiment  use  your   log  to  write  down  the  data  and  observa=ons  below.  In  your  log  you  will  need  to:   Collect  Data  -­‐  you  will  need  to  collect  numerical  data;  that  means  you  need  to   take  measurements  during  the  experiment.  Measurements  can  be  temperature,   distance,  height,  etc.  Crea=ng  a  chart  is  a  helpful  way  to  organize  your  data.  You   will  analyze  the  data  later  to  determine  the  results  of  your  experiment.     Make  Observa>ons  -­‐  as  you  conduct  your  experiment  you  will  use  your  senses   (sight,  smell,  touch,  etc.)  and  write  down  any  observa=ons  you  make  during  the   process.
