Here are the notes the students took in class:
1) It is a smart guess. (Predict what you think will happen.)
2) Write the first sentence as an If/Then statement.
3) It needs to be at least 1 complete sentence.
4) Explain why you think this will happen.
For the experiment “Which adhesive is the strongest?” (masking tape, scotch tape, packing tape, or bandaid), here is a good hypothesis:
Hypothesis- If I test the strength of four different adhesives with weights, then I think packing tape will be the strongest. I think packing tape will be the strongest, because heavy boxes used in packing get sealed with it.
