Default Help! Having trouble writing up my project

Hi! I'm 12 years old and I have my first science fair project and it's really stressing me out. I found a great project idea about how to show that my dog has a good understanding about vocabulary and I even found experiments I want to do that german scientists did with a border collie. Here are the links of 2 stories I found.

[url]http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/5180799[/url]

But I'm having problems writing it down in my project description. My teacher wants us to use a hypothesis written using If ... (this is true) ... then ... (this is what will happen). I looked at so many web sites to see how other kids write them but they are all different and written in an easier way. I don't even know how to answer the questions like how will you measure, what things will you measure and what will you measure with?

It's like in my head I know excaxtly everything I need and want to do but I just can't write it the way my teacher is asking me to. I really hope someone can help me! Thanks a lot!

For your hypothesis: If dogs have a good understanding of vocabulary, then they will respond to...(certain words). To measure, you can time how quickly your dog responds, or compare what words he listens to and whihc he doesn't.

I saw the site u linked and its really cool. If your teacher has give you the structure of the hypothesis then i don't see a problem. I mean it'll just be like filling in the blanks. Ravercraft's hypothesis also worked well.

It depends on the breed of dog, it is proven that Border Collies have the highest IQ of any dog breed and therefore would be more suseptible to training. See what would happen to other breeds.
