Scientific method 1

1. 1. The Scientific Method<br />A procedure that tests out a scientists hypothesis to see if it is correct.<br />
2. 2. Steps 1 and 2 Make an observation and ask a question<br />Observe something and Ask a question<br /> For example: I might see a dog walking home from school. I might ask, “ Why is that dog so skinny?”<br />
3. 3. Step 3- Form a Hypothesis<br />A hypothesis is an educated guess.<br /> For example: The dog is so skinny because it only eats three times a week.<br />
4. 4. Step 4- Test the Hypothesis<br />The scientist is going to gather information, do research, and collect data for his or her hypothesis.<br />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.<br />
5. 5. Step 5- Observation<br />Scientist will take data and start comparing and contrasting and making observations from the information gathered or the experiment that was performed.<br />For example: After studying the dog for two weeks, I will look at my information and make an observation.<br />
6. 6. Step 6- Results<br />The results will either prove the scientists hypothesis or it will not prove the scientists hypothesis.<br />
7. 7. Step 7- Conclusion/Question<br />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.<br />For example:<br />The dog doesn’t <br />eat on a regular<br />schedule. Its owner<br />forgets to feed it.<br />
8. 8. Homework<br />Make an observation at home.<br />Ask a question about that observation.<br />Form a hypothesis.<br />Due Friday, August 19th.<br />
9. 9. It is YOUR turn<br />Tomorrow we will do an experiment with M&M’s.<br />You and partner will use the scientific method<br />Friday, August 12- there will be a quiz on the Scientific method. What are the steps in order?<br />
10. 10. Act out the Scientific Method<br />Get in your group and discuss and write out the steps without looking. (3 minutes)<br />How can your group act out the step your assigned of the method?<br />You get 10 minutes to come up with a way to act out your step.<br />All groups will act out their steps in order.<br />All members must be involved.<br />Each group will make a sign for their step.<br />
