This simple explanation of science vocabulary (and of the scientific method) will help your students recognize important academic vocabulary and understand science and psychology news and research.
The free packet includes:
• Explanations and examples of vocabulary: bias, data, evaluate, factor, valid, and variable (with its variations)
• A one-page explanation of the scientific method demonstrating those words and adding more vocabulary in context: conclusion, evidence, hypothesis, implications, interpret, relevant, and reproducible
• A five-question multiple choice quiz based on that information
• Answer key
This packet is designed as a reading activity and discussion starter. Ask students for their experiences doing experiments and solving problems. Did they follow a similar procedure? What did they do differently? What were their results? What steps do they consider the most important?
The quiz makes a good short review (or warm-up) for later in the week.
