This activity allows students to see the scientific method at work in something seemingly unrelated to science class—taking selfies!

Students work in groups to arrange selfie scenario cards into the order of the six steps of the scientific method. (Don't worry: the scenarios are school appropriate.) A worksheet is included for students to complete together and individually. The activity will last around 30-45 minutes. An extension activity is also included that takes an additional 30 minutes to complete.

This resource comes in both English and Spanish.

***This resource is ready to use for distance learning in your digital classroom if you are using Google Classroom and the TpT Digital Activities tool. Please forgive the lack of accent marks in the Spanish directions--the tool is not yet set up for this :(
