Monday, May 15th, 2016: Drifting Continents


WARM-UP:  Earth’s Layers Practice Test 2017:

HYPOTHESIS People say that a hypothesis is “an educated guess”. Well, there is NO guessing going on when someone makes a hypothesis. “In science, a hypothesis is an idea or explanation that you then test through study and experimentation.” ( Before a scientist makes a hypothesis, they do research, ask questions, and then do more research. It is not just a “guess” that someone then has to prove is true or false.

THEORYBritannica for Kids describes a scientific theory as, “an explanation for why things work or how things happen. Scientists develop theories based on their observations of the world around them. Theories are based on ideas that can be tested. Theories are not speculative, or based on a guess.”

For an idea to become a theory, there has to be not just one piece of evidence proven to be true or not true, but many pieces. Ideas are tested over and over and over before they become a trusted theory.
