Scientific Method in the first days of school?
This is not a new lesson, but I did want to remind everyone that I have a wonderful and FREE PowerPoint on the scientific method. Students are going to groan and roll their eyes in complete boredom unless you do something to spice it up. Let's be honest, they have been hearing the steps of the scientific method over and over and over for as long as they can remember. I tried to make this lesson more interactive, and more engaging. The 27 slides are colorful and (hopefully) eye-catching. I have included a 4-page set of notes for the teacher, and a 5-page outline for the student. The student will fill in the missing information as the lesson is being taught.
.....the best part.....
This lesson takes the student beyond memorizing the steps of the scientific method......again! Problem solving scenarios are included that teach the student how to work through the scientific method to answer a question or solve a problem.
"Back to School" is just around the corner. I hope that you find these materials useful and beneficial to your students. It's definitely worth your while to make sure that your students are well grounded in the scientific method early in the school year. It is a skill they should use throughout the rest of the school year.
