Ask a Question Does the temperature of water affect how long it takes a Magic Grow® capsule and the toy to grow?
Form a Hypothesis A hypothesis is testable Predict what will happen. Use an If…Then statement If you…..then…will happen.
Design and Conduct the Experiment Materials: 3 Magic Grow capsules Ice Pot 3 Beakers Water Thermometers Hot Plate Bowls
Observe and Record Data Quantitative (numbers) Qualitative (observations/words) Facts!!! Not opinions!!!
Analyze Data Create a graph Use color pencils to color graph Pencil to label graph
Draw Conclusions A conclusion is a written answer to the question. Sometimes the answer is “I don’t know.” Whatever conclusion is drawn it is always, always supported by actual data from the experiment. An answer without evidence is meaningless.
Restate the question and your hypothesis. Explain whether or not the data supported your hypothesis. Remember a hypothesis never right or wrong, just supported or not supported. You can learn as much when your hypothesis is not supported as you do when it is! You must give actual data [evidence] from your experiment to back up what you say.
