Creating a Hypothesis

We have really been focusing on how to create a hypothesis and taking the time to create wonderings too and then test them in class.  I believe students have the most valuable learning when they are creating their own questions and then experimenting to discover the answer!  Here are some examples from a lesson this week where students took their individual thoughts and created a group hypothesis and we sorted them into two categories: testable or researchable.  We also discussed how we could change the researchable questions into testable ones.  The next day in class, we tested our hypothesis and even I was surprised!
