Product Description
A 4-page worksheet that introduces students to concepts found in the twin topics of the nature of science and the scientific method. This product is designed to serve as an introduction to science as both a subject as well as a process and can be used as a jumping off point into the topic of experimental design.

I use this document as a reading and review activity that connects to my two PPT presentations entitled What is Science? and The Scientific Method. This product is part of a larger suite of scientific method products. Links to these products are found below.
