PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Scientific Method Task Cards: Experiments using the scientific method, variables, hypotheses, asking a testable question, and valid conclusions

If your students are like mine, they need extra help with the scientific method and experiments.

Even though we regularly use the scientific method in class for our experiments, we have to practice forming hypotheses, identifying variables, making plans, and constructing testable questions.
