This activity allows students to see the scientific method at work in something seemingly unrelated to science class—rappers* and music.
Students work in groups to arrange rapper scenario cards into the order of the six steps of the scientific method. (Don't worry: the scenarios are completely school appropriate.) A worksheet is included for students to complete together and individually. The activity will last between 30-45 minutes. An extension activity is also included that takes an additional 30 minutes to complete.
*Note: This resource features the fictionalized rappers X-Kon and M.T. NSide. An alternate version is also included with the names T-Rex and M.T. NSide. Each version is 14 pages for a total of 28 pages. (Some pages are identical between the versions.)
This resource comes in both English and Spanish.

What teachers are saying about this resource:
“My 5th graders LOVED this. It was fun and relevant to their coursework. Wonderful resource and using a rapper to teach scientific method was so engaging that they didn't even think they were learning anything, but they WERE!”
“Great resource, both for teachers and students! On the teacher end, it's awesome having a Spanish translation included, and suggestions for use are helpful. On the student end, this helps make the scientific method so much more understandable and "real" to them. They finally get that science DOES relate to them!”
“This kept my kids totally engaged and interested and explained the Scientific Method in a new, fun way!”
