The Scientific Method in Action

Get your science fledglings to spread their wings with this worksheet. After teaching them about the scientific process, give them two real-life scenarios to think critically through: Fleming's experimentation with penicillin and Dr. Eijkman's hypothesis regarding beriberi. Learners state the problem as a testable question, determine whether or not the experiments were controlled, and suggest conclusions. This is a terrific way to see how the scientific method has been used throughout history.
