Observation Question Hypothesis Method Result

4 The Scientific Method Observation- You observe something
in the material world, using your senses or machines which are basically extensions of those senses. AH—Look at this!

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.
