Fair testing with Slaters

Today we explored the scientific idea of 'fair testing'.
Firstly we identified 3 variables about where slaters like to live
            1. Dry or Damp?
             2. Light or Dark?
             3. Wood or Dirt?

then we wrote a hypothesis - what did we think would happen if the slaters were given a choice of habitat?

We made habitats that could test 1 variable

So each group put together 3 boxes - with the centre box being the 'CONTROL'.
Next we introduced some slaters and either light, different materials or a damp / dry towel


Then we watched what they did...
