The Scientific Method
Step #1
Ask a Question
a statement that requires an answer
You can't find the answer until you know the question after all!
Step 2
Making Observations
are made with your five senses or a scientific instrument and they are facts
Step #3
Develop a Hypothesis
A hypothesis

is somewhere between a statement and a guess. It

is a proposed explanation for something that was observed.

One example of a hypothesis might be, "All flowers are yellow."
- it is something that can be tested
Step #4
Design an Experiment
- you need to keep all the variables the same, except one, the one you are testing

- factors that can change or be changed in an experiment
Independent Variable
- the variable that is changed
- the variable whose effect is being studied
Controlled Variables
- variables in an experiment that a scientist purposely keeps the same
Dependent Variable
- the variable that is measured in the experiment
Step #5
Analyze the Data
- Is the data reliable?
- Does the data support or not support your hypothesis?
Step #6
Come to a Conclusion
- look for trends and specific pieces of data that can either support or not support your hypothesis
Is the data inaccurate or the experiment flawed?
Modify / Change the Experiment

the scientific method is a way for scientists to study and learn things.
