  • 5. The Scientific Method Question - You ask a question about what you observe. State the problem or question.
  • 6. The Scientific Method Hypothesis - You predict what you think the answer to your question might be.
  • 7. The Scientific Method Method - You figure out a way to test whether the hypothesis is correct. The outcome must be measurable (quantifiable). Record and analyze data.
  • 8. The Scientific Method Result - You do the experiment using the method you came up with and record the results. You repeat the experiment to confirm your results by retesting.
  • 9. The Scientific Method State Conclusion - You state whether your prediction was confirmed or not and try to explain your results.
