Learn all about the scientific method and how it helps scientists analyze the world around them. Scientists start with a question, then do research to try to find answers. Then, scientists form a hypothesis that they believe is the correct answer to their question. A good hypothesis is tested through an experiment. Scientists collect data and record the results of an experiment, forming a conclusion about whether or not their hypothesis was correct. Students will learn how to think like scientists! Easy-to-read text paired with vibrant images keep students engaged from cover to cover. This reader also includes instructions for an engaging science activity where students can use the scientific method to learn about plants. A helpful glossary and index are also included for additional support.
