• Inference
• Prediction
Tell your elbow partner:

Based on the video, what does using the scientific method look like?
1. Determine a testable

2. Generate a hypothesis.

3. Determine how to test the

4. Analyze test results.

5. Review findings and consider
the next steps.
You must have all the parts of a good experiment written out so that other scientists could repeat your work:

* Testable Research Question
* Hypothesis
* Materials
* Procedure
* Results
* Conclusions and suggestions for
further study
* Comparing strength of paper towels

*Comparing absorbancy of diapers

* Various cleaning solutions for removing mustard stains

* Bubbles produced by dishwashing detergent

* Choosing the best plastic zip lock bags for storage
Each team of scientists must check in with Dr. Lambe before leaving the lab tonight.
