The six-week study of the scientific method presented on SchoolhouseTeachers.com by teacher Anna Crisostomo, introduces students to the scientific method, the vocabulary related to it, the uses it has in everyday life, and its use in future science studies. Activities are included, along with worksheets (some with answer keys), and ideas for science fairs are given. It is best to follow these lessons through sequentially so the student learns to develop and use the scientific method.
