4th grade science fair projects typically would involve answering a question, solving a problem, or testing a hypothesis. Basically, a scientific investigation process is mandatory for 4th grade science fair projects. To assist the selection of an interesting project for 4th grade students, here is big list of sample science investigation questions for your reference.

 

1. Force and Motion:
