Part 1 and Part 2 due on or before October 29
Part 1 

Journal- Set up your journal in preparation to record observations throughout all parts of the project.  Journals should include; written descriptions, labeled sketches, data tables and graphs, questions, ideas, and problems. Use your journal daily!
Background InformationWhy did you choose your question? Where did you get the idea? What real world application does it have? What science did you learn about your project/topic through research? Conduct research from a variety of sources (i.e. experts, research articles, web pages, books). Sources must be cited.
 Your inquiry question must have a independent variable (x-axis) and an dependent variable (y-axis).
 the independent variable is the variable you change in the experiment while the dependent variable is the corresponding measurement.
 This is your “educated”, predicted outcome of the inquiry.  You will need to explain your thinking and reasoning in detail.  A graph of your hypothesis would be a good visual to go along with your written explanation.  Don’t forget the independent variable (x-axis) and an dependent variable (y-axis).
Part 2
Materials List and Procedure-

Go to the inquiry portal for guidance on this part or any part of the science fair project. Include a step by step list of the procedure you followed in your experiment. Write this section so that someone who doesn’t know anything about your project can follow what you did. Explain as though your audience is intelligent, but uninformed. Using diagrams along with your explanation of the procedure is a good idea.
