Postby elwinas » Sun Jan 04, 2015 6:43 pm

I need some help to create a right question and hypothesis for my since project. I was trying to find out if my guinea pig has a preferences when it comes to the food that she eats daily. I was feeding her with carrots (sweet) and lettuce in the morning and at the night, to see if she would pick to eat first sweet carrot or plain lettuce.. Made my observation and notes...And now im not sure how to create the question and hypothesis .Thank you all for help!

This is a great experiemnt for you - it seems you are very interested in your pet and his diet. Did you look at the Science Fair Project Guide for help with your hypothesis? I want to make sure you read through this first:

Let me know how much that helped. It seems to me that your hypothesis is something like: "the guinea pig prefers to eat the sweet carrots first" Understanding WHY he does that could be more complicated.
