The package contains editable files for four lessons. The first lesson is a review of the scientific method. I use a Mythbusters video (not included because of copyright) to guide students through the features of the scientific method. Then, in the second lesson, I introduce the assignment to the students - they will become the teacher and create a worksheet for an experiment of their choosing (real or fictional). They use their knowledge of the scientific method to plan out their worksheet. Over the third and fourth lessons, students work in groups to plan/create their worksheet and create example answers.

For a full preview, you can visit, where you will find .pdf copies of all of the lesson files. This purchase will provide you with the Smart Notebook files, as well as all worksheets and examples in Word format. Also, things you will not find on my webpage, are example feedback, a rubric (editable) and student work examples.

I have taught this multiple times in my class, and the students really have fun with it. Some of their work is so good I could actually post their worksheets here ;)
