Use this PowerPoint to teach the first step of the Scientific Method / Scientific Process. Use a classroom investigation to teach the idea of the testable question. Kids will have a great time and learn how to pick a testable question for their very own Science Fair Project. Includes hand-out for first assignment - Picking a Topic.
When students understand each step of the scientific process from Hands-on experience they can much more easily adapt this to their own experiment. This helps keep the work of science fair projects where it belongs... in the hands of the students!
This can be a great introduction not only for Science Fair but also for your science class!!
