Scientific Method

Website provides links to all components of science investigation.  Each link leads to down loadable material that easily to use in classroom.  A couple examples  are: 1.  controls and variable link  has three experiment scenarios where student are  directed to identify the control group, independent variable,  dependent variable, and what conclusion could be drawn from the scenario 2. Analyzing Data link has a worksheet where students are asked to graph data provide, interpret bar and pie graphs provided by answering questions. This website has numerous links. Links include scientific method, ideas for experiments, analyzing and graphing data , and microscope use
