Last week you made and tested the space rocket.


Today you are going to write up your experiment.



You should have thought about this last week before starting the experiment. What did you think would happen.



This should just be a list of all the equipment you used. The point of this is so that if someone else wants to repeat the experiment they know what they will need to use.



This is what you did. It should be a step by step guide. The more detailed you can make this the better.

The point of this is so that if someone else wants to repeat the experiment they know what they will need to do.

I would suggest that this needs probably at least 6 steps and may take even more.



This is what happened. For our results in this experiment it will be an observation. Did it work? Did you try it more than once?



What did you find out. First try to answer your hypothesis – did it work? If you repeated the experiment can you say why you did it more than once.
