Think of a question that you want to answer. Scientists call this question the problem.
Research the topic:
Go to the library , get books , use the computer, talk to family and friends, interview professionals , and write to companies to gather information about your topic. Keep notes concerning this information to use later in a research
Form a hypothesis:
Write what you think will happen in your experiment. Base your hypothesis on what you learned from your research.
Design an experiment:
Find an experiment that will help you find an answer to your problem. Better yet, make up your own!
List your procedures:
Write out the steps of your experiment. Include a list of the materials that you use.
Use your five senses and measuring devices (ruler, scale, measuring cup, etc.) to describe what happens during your experiment.
Show your observations by making graphs, tables, drawing pictures, taking photographs , and/or writing them out in sentences.
Write what you have learned about your problem as it relates to your hypothesis from your research notes and experiment observations.
