This packet walks you through each step of the scientific method. It can be used with any science lab requiring the use of the scientific method. I have typically used it with my introductory Parachutes lab. Students need to decide on a question that they want answers for regarding parachutes. Typically, questions have been:
What shapes float the best?
Does size make a difference in how fast they fall?
Does the material of the parachute matter?
I have gone through the lab sheet whole class and we have brainstormed and filled it out together. We actually built parachutes according to the specifications that the class came up with and test their hypotheses. It was a very engaging activity overall!
