Teaching the scientific method? Preparing for the science fair? Show students the importance of  well-written materials and method (procedure) sections in a science experiment!

This three-part, no-prep activity explains to students that good science is replicable and highlights the importance of developing clear and concise methods or procedure sections.

Paper & colored pencils is all you need to kick back and have a relaxing and productive science class today! At the end, students are able to compare drawings and see the outcomes of overly detailed instructions as well as incomplete instructions.

Have each student work on their own design or give a uniform picture for the whole class. Don't forget to put the A, in STEAM :)

NGSSMS-ETS1-3
Analyze data from tests to determine similarities and differences among several design solutions to identify the best characteristics of each that can be combined into a new solution to better meet the criteria for success.
NGSS3-5-ETS1-2
Generate and compare multiple possible solutions to a problem based on how well each is likely to meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.
NGSS3-5-ETS1-1
Define a simple design problem reflecting a need or a want that includes specified criteria for success and constraints on materials, time, or cost.
NGSS3-5-ETS1-3
Plan and carry out fair tests in which variables are controlled and failure points are considered to identify aspects of a model or prototype that can be improved.
