                                          Creating a Hypothesis Homework
Directions: Read each of the scenarios below and follow the steps listed to write a testable
hypothesis.

                                                             Humid Plants
Step 1: Read the following scenario: You notice that house plants that are in your bathroom seem larger than the
house plants in your living room. You wonder if the difference in humidity between the two rooms might be
causing this difference.

Step 2: Use the observation and testable question below to write an If/Then hypothesis using the sentence
stem that is given.

          Observation: Plants in the humid bathroom environment seem to grow larger.

          Testable Question: How does the amount of humidity affect how large my plants will grow?

          Hypothesis: If I increase the amount of humidity my plants receive then


                                                                                                                  .
                                                             Camera Batteries
Step 1: Read the following scenario: You have used different brands of batteries in you digital camera over the
last few months and noticed that with some battery brands you are able to take more pictures. You wonder if
different batteries last longer than others.

Step 2: Use the observation and testable question below to write an If/Then hypothesis using the sentence
stem that is given.

          Observation: The camera seems to take more pictures with certain brands of batteries.

          Testable Question: How does the brand of batteries affect how many pictures I can take with my camera?

          Hypothesis: If I                                                   then…


                                                                                                                  .

                                                               Grass Stains
Step 1: Read the following scenario: Your mom has used several different types of laundry detergent (Tide, All,
and Arm &Hammer) to wash your football uniforms during the last months. Sometimes the grass stains come out
and sometime they are still there. You wonder which brand of detergent is better at removing the grass stains.

Step 2: Use the observation to create a testable question and write an If/Then hypothesis using the
sentence stem that is given

          Observation: _____________________________________________________________________________.

          Testable Question: _________________________________________________________________________ .

          Hypothesis: If I…                                             ____         then, _____________


                                                                                                                    .


                                                      Straighter Soccer Balls
Step 1: Read the following scenario: You are in a community soccer league. Your team normally uses a Nike
Ultra Strike but at your last game another player brought a new Adidas Jabulani. After kicking it a few times you
noticed that it seemed to travel straighter than the Ultra Strike.

Step 2: Use the observation to create a testable question and write an If/Then hypothesis using the
sentence stem that is given

          Observation: _____________________________________________________________________________.

          Testable Question: _________________________________________________________________________ .

          Hypothesis: If I…                                             ____         then, _____________


                                                                                                                    .

                                                              Trout Parasites
Step 1: Read the following scenario: Scientists from the Department of Fish and Game have noticed that trout
are more likely to get whirling disease parasites when they are living in warmer waters

Step 2: Use the observation to create a testable question and write an If/Then hypothesis using the
sentence stem that is given.

          Observation: _____________________________________________________________________________.

          Testable Question: _________________________________________________________________________ .

          Hypothesis: If I…                                             ____         then, _____________


                                                                                                                    .
