PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a PowerPoint that introduces the steps to the scientific method and the parts of a controlled experiment. Vocabulary that is introduced includes: observation, hypothesis, variable, independent variable, dependent variable, constants, and infer. The presentation walks through an example experiment, naming the parts. There are multiple transitions between questions on individual slides to facilitate classroom discussion during the presentation. The pictures are engaging to middle school students. I have used this with 6th, 7th and 8th graders, usually in the beginning of the school year when scientific method and experimental design are reviewed.
