6th grade science project

posted by .

My 1st science project and we have something to turn in each week from now till the science fair. this week it is the variables. Project from science buddies. I am doing-Ocean Currents: modeling the 'Global Conveyer Belt' in your Kitchen. Am I correct in my experimental design?
I have as my independent variable-temperature of the vegetable oil/thyme mixture measured in degrees centigrade. My dependent variables-- #1 Observe the pattern of fluid flow once the vegetable oil begins to heat up #2- Observe the location of individual flakes of thyme over time #3-Measure the temperature of the oil in different parts of the model #4-Measure the velocity of the vegetable oil/thyme mixture and different tmeperatures. My controlled variables would be-- Amount of vegetable oil and thyme. Is there anything I am missing? OR more importantly am I totally wrong??

    First you need to determine you hypothesis. What do you think might happen with the temperature change? This will help you to determine what your dependent variable(s) is (are).
