The "Testable Question Relay" was created as part of a fourth-grade unit on conducting science experiments. In the relay, student teams raced to "outfit a scientist" by correctly categorizing questions as testable or untestable and earning scientific tools. This activity assists upper-elementary students in recognizing the components of good investigative questions, addresses associated misconceptions, and aids students in developing questions appropriate for scientific investigation. (Contains 5 figures.)
