Problem Solving in Science The Scientific Method

Step One: ___________ Science starts with Making an _________________ Example: I wonder why my car wont start. Science Example: I wonder what would happen if I put the plant in the closet.

Step 2: _______________ Doing research before a project helps make sure no one has done it before Getting background knowledge - _____________________________ _____________________________ ______ Think of some ________ for your ______________ or ___________ you could solve the ____________

Step 3: Predictions _____________________________ __________________________? Example: My car wont start because the battery is dead. Science Example: If I put the plant in the closet, then its going to die.

Predictions = Hypothesis Hypothesis - _____ ________________ 2 parts 1. If [tell what you are going to do] - example If I put the plant in the closet 2. Then [tell what you think is going to happen] - example -then its going to die… _________________ _________________ _________________ _________________ _________________ _________________ _________________ _________________

Step 4: Test it (_______________) Follow steps to see if your prediction is right Scientists make very _________ steps so other people could follow them too

Step 5: Observe and Record Results Use _______ ________ and ______ to record what happened Car example: Did your car start with a new battery? The car didnt start Science example: Did the plant in the closet die? The plant died.

Step 6: Make a conclusion _____________________________ ___________________________ Being wrong is NOT a bad thing - lots of great discoveries have been made when something went wrong _______________________________ _______________________________ _______________________________ ____________

Conclusions #2 Car example: The new battery didnt make the car start. ________________ _______________________________ ____________ Science example: The plant die when it didnt have sunlight. So plants need sunlight in order to survive. - ___________________________________ - other scientists will test and see if you are still correct.
