How To Use The Scientific Method

The Scientific Method is a systematic way to find answers to questions that interest you. The following five steps will make the documentation of your home science experiments easier.

1. Question: Make observations and develop your question. The question should be about what you are interested in learning or what you want to know.

2. Hypothesis: State your hypothesis. Your hypothesis is your educated guess about what you think will happen.

3. Method: The method is the process or steps of your experiment. This should be very detailed and include materials needed.

4. Results: The results are the facts or data that you collect from your experiment.

5. Conclusion: In the conclusion, you explain why you think the experiment happened the way it did. Include whether the results supported your hypothesis or not.
