Teach two key steps of the scientific method: asking questions and writing a hypothesis with this 23 slide Google Slide presentation. It’s not safe to assume that you’re students will automatically be able to ask strong questions or write a good scientific hypothesis, but after this presentation they should walk away with a much stronger understanding of the purpose of the scientific method.
This asking questions and writing a hypothesis presentation covers:
- what kinds of questions science can and can’t answer
- empirical evidence
- all the key points of the NGSS SEP “Asking Questions”
- what a good hypothesis looks like (If…, then…)
- relationships between variables
This is an interactive lesson with several slides requiring student interaction. You can have students type in the presentation itself by making a copy for each student or connect to interactive presentation apps such as Nearpod or Peardeck.
This lesson is compatible for student paced or instructor paced presentation.
