Over the years I have created and used these charts to help my students and my adult learners learn how to make observations, design a testable question for an experiment, and to identify the parts of the experiment such as the independent variable, the dependent variable, and the constants. These charts make it easy for students to record their own ideas in their science notebooks.
To print these, simply download them and take them to Office Max or Staples. They are ready to print and laminate! I hope you enjoy them as much as I have in creating and using them!
