### Transcript

• 1. The Scientific Method
A procedure that tests out a scientists hypothesis to see if it is correct.
• 2. Steps 1 and 2 Make an observation and ask a question
Observe something and Ask a question
For example: I might see a dog walking home from school. I might ask, “ Why is that dog so skinny?”
• 3. Step 3- Form a Hypothesis
A hypothesis is an educated guess.
For example: The dog is so skinny because it only eats three times a week.
• 4. Step 4- Test the Hypothesis
The scientist is going to gather information, do research, and collect data for his or her hypothesis.
For example: I would gather information on how often dogs should eat and study the dog I saw walking home and keep a chart on how often it eats.
• 5. Step 5- Observation
Scientist will take data and start comparing and contrasting and making observations from the information gathered or the experiment that was performed.
For example: After studying the dog for two weeks, I will look at my information and make an observation.
• 6. Step 6- Results
The results will either prove the scientists hypothesis or it will not prove the scientists hypothesis.
• 7. Step 7- Conclusion/Question
After the scientists makes observations, he or she will come to a conclusion. This may cause him or her to ask another question. Which may lead to another experiment.
For example:
The dog doesn’t
eat on a regular
schedule. Its owner
forgets to feed it.
• 8. Homework
Make an observation at home.
