  17. 17. TESTABLE QUESTIONSA TESTABLE QUESTION IS A QUESTION THATCAN BE ANSWERED BY: ✓ OBSERVING ✓ MEASURING ✓ EXPERIMENTING
  18. 18. EXAMPLES OF TESTABLE QUESTIONS QUESTION: AT WHAT TEMPERATURE DOES WATER BOIL? THIS QUESTION CAN BE ANSWERED BY CONDUCTING AN EXPERIMENT. YOU WILL NEED: - A THERMOMETER, SOME WATER - A HEATPROOF CONTAINER - A SOURCE OF HEATTESTABLE QUESTION: EXPERIMENTING, MEASURING, OBSERVING
  19. 19. EXAMPLES OF TESTABLE QUESTIONS QUESTION: DOES THE PLANET VENUS HAVE PHASES LIKE THE MOON? THIS QUESTION CAN BE ANSWERED THROUGH OBSERVATIONS. YOU WILL NEED: -A TELESCOPE -A NOTEBOOK OR CALENDAR FOR RECORDING YOUR OBSERVATIONSTESTABLE QUESTION: EXPERIMENTING, MEASURING, OBSERVING
