Name: __________________________________________ 5th grade Science # ___________________
My Question is: ________________________________________________________________
Using the research I conducted, here is my Hypothesis Chart:
Things I can change
Choosing the Independent Variable
Things I can measure
Choosing the Dependent Variable
Put a star by the Independent Variable and the Dependent Variable (one on each side of the question)
Label the constants next to the boxes above:
Your Final Hypothesis: If _______________________________________________ then
Your independent variable:_______________________________________________________
Your dependent variable: ______________________________________________________
Your constants that will have to stay the same in your experiment are:
____________________ , _____________________ , _____________________
Now, create the Rough Draft T-chart by using your Hypothesis Chart.
Now its time to make a Final T- chart using the one above and our example in class. Example the
constant of Water/Water or Time/Time is not enough. You need to use this time to decide how much
water, or how much time? A better T-chart would say 2 cups of water, 2 cups of water (or) 1 hour, 1
hour on the chart.
DV: List the SAME
Dependent variable you listed
before. You haven’t done your
experiment yet, so you don’t have
your results. You DO need to decide
HOW you will measure it here.
Ex: if you say you are measuring
length—is that in inches,
feet, meters, miles?
AWESOME JOB! You are now ready to create your PROCEDURE. Use a separate sheet of paper to
convert your FINAL T-chart into the procedure you will use during the experiment. Remember,
Procedures have a materials list and a safety section!
