What are some testable questions?
A testable question is a question that we can answer through a science experiment. To do this, we do a control science experiment, then we change one thing in the experiment to see how it affects what happens. This is how we can discover the answer to our question!
What makes a cloud form?
Can drink and food taste different just by changing its color?
Does the color of light affect photosynthesis?
Does temperature affect seed sprouting?
What makes popcorn pop?
