High schoolers work to create a design that will protect an egg from being dropped from a one story floor. They test their prototype after it is completed. They write clear instructions and link aspects of the design process to the scientific method.
Start your school year in science with these activities and worksheets related to the scientific method.
Use the Mythbusters model to jazz up your scientific method lessons!
In this scientific method activity, students are given materials to build the tallest tower using toothpicks. They then experiment again using the scientific method to try to build a taller tower changing one variable in the experiment.
Students complete a basic science experiment as a class and go through the steps of the scientific method. In this scientific method lesson plan, students do this all together as an introduction.
Through the use of a Reading Rainbow episode, clever in-class games and activities, and an ITV Series video, second and third graders engage in a study of the scientific method; what it is, and how scientists use it. This well-designed plan should lead to a thorough understanding of this important technique used by scientists throughout the world.
Students explore importance of accuracy in reporting, focusing particularly on articles documenting scientific discoveries, and practice scientific method by conducting experiments to test and report on scientific hypotheses.
Students participate in an experiment and learn to record it using the scientific method.  For this biodegradable plastics lesson, students follow the scientific method to complete an inquiry. Students complete an experiment with a fish tail.
Students recognize and follow the steps of the scientific method to complete an experiment.  In this scientific method instructional activity, students use inquiry tools to measure objects.  Students record their data.
First graders identify the different steps of the scientific method. In this life science lesson, 1st graders apply this method when conducting a series of hands-on activities. They collect data and write observations in their journals.
Students use scientific process skills to solve a problem. In this scientific investigation lesson, students investigate a scientific problem, work through the scientific method to form a conclusion. They share their work and findings with the class or in at a science fair.
Student's recall from memory the steps in the scientific method. TSWBAT describe in detail the various steps of the scientific method. TSWBAT analyze a problem or situation and apply the steps of the scientific method to it.
Young investigators conduct an experiment using the scientific method. They see how many drops of water fit on a coin; have them conduct several different trials. This involves making a hypothesis, looking at controls, and introducing variables.
Students explore scientific method and scientific investigation They conduct an investigation using bacteria and antibiotics. In addition, they verbalize their experimental results.
Learners use the scientific method explicitly and independently to solve a problem/answer a question. They are able to write complete and comprehensive lab protocol that helps answer a question and use appropriate grammar and writing technique in writing their lab protocol. Students use creativity and originality to answer a question and better examine how to implement the scientific method.
Young scholars are given some components of an experiment, where they are able to identify and fill in missing parts, such as hypothesis, conclusion, results, etc. They form a hypothesis given general scientific facts. Students apply the components of the scientific method and a lab report to one of the two labs run in class to prepare a poster as they would for a science fair.
Five individuals in the class are "infected" with cholera! The rest of the class serves as investigators to discover the source of the outbreak. They test drinking fountains around campus for contamination. You, of course, will secretly rig the results to show a source. Not really a lesson in epidemiology, this is an outstanding lesson for practicing the steps of the scientific method or refining lab skills. 
Students explore the scientific method. In this scientific method activity, students use information gathered from a "Seed Dispersal" lab done previously to complete a worksheet listing the steps of the scientific method.
Sixth graders review the steps in the scientific method. They review international system of measurement (SI) and apply these measurements in a real-world application. They apply selected steps in scientific method to problem solving.
Students study the steps involved in the scientific method. They apply the scientific method to their science fair projects.
