Here are some things to think about before starting your scientific experiments:

1.)  Planning

2.)  Investigation & Observing

3.)  Analysis and Evaluation

1.)  Planning:

- It is essential to do effective planning
- Decide on what equipment and apparatus you will need.
- Describe and assess any hazards you might encounter in your investigation.
- Outline your plan for your investigation.
- Decide what materials and information you will need to collect.
- Decide what you will measure and observe.

2.)  Investigation:

- Always make sure that your experiment is a fair test.
- Record your results clearly and accurately.
- Achieve your information carefully through accurate observation and measurements.
- Repeat your steps of measureing and observing to ensure that your information is reliable.

3.)  Analysis & Evaluation:

- Present your results in the most effective way (use charts, table, graphs...)
- Analysis your result to see if there are any patterns.
- Get conclusion from your results.
- Think about the strength of your evidence, results.  Can the process have any improvements?  Would you do anything differently?

Write your experiments under these headings:

Your Aim - Why do you want to do the experiment?  What hypothesis are you going to test?  Reason for your experiment; you want to find out why A is good but B is not so good?

Your Method - What are you goiing to do or test?  Make labels and/or diagrams to help keep your method in order.

Your Result - As you carry out your experiments be sure to observe things happening and record measurements.  Sometimes it is a good idea to record your results in a table or chart.
