I know there are several different steps in Sc Method I am using 5
1-State Problem
2-Hypothesis using If-----Then(If I take an asprin Then my headache will go away
3-Materials
4-Procedure
5Conclusion
I really am not sure if this is beneficial to them I know Sc Method is different than Sc. Inquiry. Could you all share your steps for Sc. Method steps ?

State the problem.
Form a hypothesis
Design the experiment
Collect data
Draw conclusion

This is my first year teaching 4th grade science and we start out with the Scientific Method. There is not one set form for it but you have the general outline! I decided I would keep searching and i found a fun song (my kids last year loved the LA ones) on Have Fun Teaching dot com! So, I decided to take my steps from the song because I think singing it all the time will help them remember it!!

I have also made a SM packet if you are interested you can send me your e-mail somehow (since I am "new" I cannot post yet) and I would be happy to send it you

Would you be willing to share your SM packet with me too? I teach 4th grade as well. To make it easy to remember, I teach the phrase "OHEC" sounds like Oh Heck! Observation, hypotheses, experiment and conclusion.

I teach it this way

1. Make observation and ask questions.
2. Make a hypothesis (A guess, but must be testable).
3. Design experiment (list materials and procedure so others know what to do. Control all variables except the one you are testing).
4. Collect data (charts, tables, written observations).
5. Draw conclusions and share results with others.

I've had a lot of success teaching my students this little acronym to remember the steps to the scientific method:

(Question, research, hypothesis, experiment, data, conclusion)
