    *How 5 scientists, who all lived before 1300 A.D. in Africa, Asia and Europe, developed the scientific method and why they are thought of as “fathers of the scientific method” (fathers of the scientific method).

    How does it help teachers?

    * The Skype with a Scientist lesson plan tells you exactly how to implement the activity; the activity integrates speaking, listening, and writing skills; it helps students understand the value of the scientific method and how it is used in real life; students get the chance to talk to and be inspired by a real scientist.

    * The poster in the 3 Scientific Method Activities resource provides an easy way to introduce a unit about the scientific method; the word search puzzle can be used as a filler or for homework; the writing task lets students demonstrate their understanding of some vocabulary words about the scientific method.

    * The Fathers of the Scientific Method resource helps students learn background information and provides context for a unit on the scientific method; learning about some scientists who lived in Africa and Asia shows how non-Western cultures contributed to achievements in science; incorporating research, reading, and writing skills provides a cross-curricular approach to Science lessons; 3 organizers help students, especially those who need additional support, do the work.
