In the Virginia Standards of Learning (SOL's), students are asked to design investigations to understand various scientific topics. This document is the perfect tool to use with experiments where students are asked to identify the independent and dependent variable. This document provides a document for students in grades 1-3 as well. It does not ask students to identify the independent or dependent variable, but rather asks students to identify what they want to change, what they will observe or measure, and what they will keep the same in order to have a fair test. Great tool for interactive notebooks!
