hypothesis for geodes

Postby MTK888 » Fri Mar 17, 2017 9:26 pm

Hi, Please help! I'm trying to help my 3rd grade daughter with her science fair project. Her project is "Jumping For Geodes: Can You Tell the Inside from the Outside?" We can not figure out how to word her hypothesis. If...Then???
Thank you

Dear concerned parent,

Welcome to ScienceBuddies! ScienceBuddies has a tab called "Project Guide," which can help you and your daughter formulate a good hypothesis! The link is here: http://www.sciencebuddies.org/science-f ... ndex.shtml, and the section "Constructing a Hypothesis" will be most useful to you!

A hypothesis should generally predict a trend and involve both the independent and dependent variable, and while they usually take the form of "If ____, Then _____", they don't have to.

If your daughter needs more help constructing the hypothesis, please don't hesitate to ask!

Hope this helped,

JSK
