This activity gets kids THINKING about how they can put the Scientific Method to use in real life!
This worksheet gives students 7 interesting questions such as "How does oil from an oil spill affect a bird’s feathers?". They have to write a hypothesis to each question, and then describe an experiment that could be performed to test their hypothesis. They state the independent variable, the dependent variable and describe all of the controls that would need to be put into place.
