These worksheets can be used for elementary, middle and high school students. The purpose of these worksheets is to make learning the scientific method more meaningful and engaging to students by providing them with six real life examples in which the steps of the scientific method can be applied. There are six worksheets for students to complete to gain a better understanding of applying the scientific method to real world situations. For instance, students will learn how the scientific method can be used to determine if an aluminum baseball bat will help Addison hit more home runs than a wooden baseball bat. Students can work independently or they could work cooperatively while completing the worksheets. The worksheets can also be used to test students' prior knowledge and as a post assessment tool by the classroom teacher to check for students’ conceptual learning of the scientific method. The answer to these worksheets are provided for each real life examples. Teachers can instruct the students to write the number or provide a written response for their answers. If the worksheets are not being used to check for students' prior knowledge of the scientific method, the teacher should make sure his or her students’ understand the science terms that are associated with the steps of the scientific method(independent variable , dependent variable , control group. constants, etc.) before having their students complete the assignment. Each of the six real life example comes with an answer sheet. Each passage requires students to identify and recognize the problem, the information gathered, the hypothesis formed, the experiment used, the data analyzed, and the conclusion formed from the experiment or real life situation.
