After viewing my Basic Scientific Method PowerPoint, students were given this handout. Each box on the handout contains a situation representing a stage of the scientific method. Students are to identify which stage each box represents. My students then cut out the boxes, arranged them in the correct order, and glued them into their notebooks to represent a complete situation in which the scientific method was used. My 8th graders loved cutting and pasting for this activity an they worked in groups to discuss the content of each box before labeling it as problem, hypothesis, experiment, data, or conclusion.
