Many students think of the scientific method as a step-by-step process that all scientists follow in order. But real research is rarely so neat and tidy…it is really more of a research cycle or spiral because things you learn in one step can change your ideas about what you’ve already done or about next steps.
It is OK to change your thinking! We encourage you to go back and edit things you write in this section at any time as your ideas change. Just remember to ADD to your entries (put new stuff at the top) and don’t delete or overwrite anything you or other students in your group have written.

|Explore||Plants are a very big part of our existence as we know it. Plants provide us with food, oxygen, and something pretty to look at. We have discovered in class that there are many different plants in the world. They are all different, but yet the same in so many ways. Questions: ~What plants are beneficial to human consumption? ~What plants aren't healthy for human consumption?|
|Research Question||What is the different amounts of pollen in the atmosphere?|
|Predictions||If we put our pollen traps up higher, then we will collect more pollen.|
|Experimental Design||Our independent variable would be how high we put our traps. The dependent variable would be how much pollen we collect. Our general procedure for our data collection would be 3 different traps. We will set the pollen traps in our football stadium during our second block class. One pollen trap will be sat at the lowest, highest, and middle point. We will count the pollen grains by putting our findings under the microscope and count. In order to count each pollen grain, we will look at it at 100x magnification.|
