You can do the following with a partner.

Visit the Magnetic Hill Zoo website, and select two different animals that can be seen at the zoo. https://www.moncton.ca/magnetichillzoo

Referring back to the biome project that was completed in the fall, answer the questions about each of the animals that you have selected.

1. What is the animal's name?

2. What is its scientific name?

3. What biome does it typically live in? (desert, arctic tundra, boreal forest, temperate forest, tropical rainforest, or grasslands)

4. What is the climate of that biome? (Average temperature, rainfall/snowfall)

5. What adaptations allow it to live in that biome?

After visiting the zoo, compare what you see with what you've researched. Is there anything that you would recommend to the zoo to make the animal more comfortable?

We are two weeks into the planning of our science fair projects. By the end of this week, the following questions should be answered:

1. The first thing you need to do is figure out what we are going to test. That does not mean that you need a title, we can get that at the end. It does mean that you need to write a question that you plan to investigate.

2. Now that you have an initial question, we need to set limits to what we plan to investigate. Its expected that science projects are fair, so need identify the variables.

Independent variable

Dependent variable

3. We now have a better understanding of the variables that we plan to test and measure, rephrase your initial question in a testable form.

4. A big part of being a scientist is using what you already know about your subject to predict what you think will happen in your project and to justify scientifically why you think so. State a hypothesis based on research, background information or an observed pattern of events. 

5. Now its time to design how you are going to test your experiment.

A. List the materials needs for this experiment

B. Identify the variables that need to be controlled for this experiment to be fair

C. Design the methods to test your hypothesis
