After you have asked at least two questions of your own and have read the answers to all the other questions your classmates have asked up until that point, you should come up with and post a specific, testable hypothesis about what is in the can.
You should also request that the store manager do things to the can and then report back the results to you. For example, if you would like to ask, "What sounds do you hear when you shake the can?", that will count as one of your questions. Use all the evidence that your classmates have acquired as you write your hypothesis. During the week, you should also respond to your classmates' questions and revise your hypothesis if a new piece of evidence emerges that proves your hypothesis incorrect.
