Science Investigating

Science Investigation
Fair Testing
Fill out the following table to help you explain the Growing in the dark: Plants and light experiment

Aim - what are you trying to find out?
If Plants need light to grow/ If they don’t!
Hypothesis - what do you think your results will be?
I think they will need light to grow, due to the possibilities of the plant dying without contact to the light outdoors and indoors.
Independent Variable - what variable will you change?
I would change the difference between how much light each plant receives,
Dependent Variable - what variable will you measure?
Height between each independent plant, before the experiment starts and when the experiment ends.
Controlled Variable - what variables will you keep the same?
I would keep the same amount of seeds and soil and water the same just to give each plant a good chance to grow,

The students of Room 4 wanted to find out what colour of bird feeders birds preferred. Fill our the table below thinking of which variables you would make independent, dependent and controlled.

Aim - what are you trying to find out?
Room 4 and I am trying to find out which colour of bird feeders birds prefer,  
Hypothesis - what do you think your results will be?
I think birds prefer brown bird feeders. Because more brown bird feeders are made then any other colour.
Independent Variable - what variable will you change?
I would change the colour and design of the bird feeder, making this experiment a close fair test.
Dependent Variable - what variable will you measure?
I would measure the height and length of the bird feeder in the beginning of the experiment and in the end.  
Controlled Variable - what variables will you keep the same?
Type of food and the size this will give it a good opportunity to become a fair test.
