OUT OF THE 100 BEAN SEEDS
I PLANTED IN MY GARDEN,
ONLY 35 GERMINATED INTO
HEALTHY PLANTS? HOW CAN
I INCREASE THE PERCENT OF
BEAN SEEDS THAT GERMINATE?

THE HYPOTHESIS
• CHANGE ONLY ONE INDEPENDENT
VARIABLE,
• WHICH SHALL IT BE? oC, H2O, Light, Time
IF ___(independent variable)_____ IS __(describe change)___
IF THE
IS INCREASED
THEN __(dependent variable)___ will __(describe change)__
THEN THE
