Pair this FREEBIE with the Scientific Inquiry PowerPoint also found in my store. Use them at the beginning of the school year to introduce your students to the Scientific Inquiry method of conducting research and experiments.
The PowerPoint includes transitions, all of which advance on mouse click. Students copy the notes from the PowerPoint into this Cloze Notes Packet to keep in their Science folder all year.
As a summarizing strategy after the PowerPoint or as an informal assessment, students can complete Scientific Inquiry Definitions to ensure they know each of the steps.
