This Acting Like a Scientist Worksheet was designed for middle school students learning about what it means to think and act like a scientist. Key concepts include observing, inferring, predicting, quantitative observations, qualitative observations, classifying, making models, and scientific literacy.
This double-sided worksheet features a helpful overview at the top, which students can refer back to while they’re working if they need help.
There are 6 modified true or false questions, 8 questions where students have match key terminology to a definition, and 6 questions where students have to determine if the statement is an observation, inference, or prediction. This worksheet is perfect for the beginning of the year. Give as classwork, assign as homework, or leave for a sub!

- Name, date, and section at the top.
- Margins that have been appropriately adjusted on the front and back pages to accommodate for hole punching and easy placement in a 3-ring binder.
- Fun and age-appropriate graphics and fonts for middle school students!
