Q uestion H ypothesis E xperiment A nalyze C onclude
The question must be testable and must be free of bias or opinion.
a) Does music effect the growth of plants? b) Are dogs happy if they eat three times a day? c) Would placing crickets in a box cause them to chirp more? d) Do the type of teeth animals have relate to what they eat? e) Is oil more or less dense than water? f) Does a Van de Graff generator put people in a good mood? YES! NO! YES! NO!
A good hypothesis is based on observations and must be testable.
a) Maybe music will effect the growth of plants. b) If you give your dog three meals a day then it will be happier. c) I think placing crickets in a box will make them chirp more sometimes. d) If animals have more sharp teeth then dull teeth then they will eat meat. e) Is oil denser than water? f) If you touch the Van de Graff generator then you will be in a good mood. NO! X YES! NO!
