Analyze It!

Torrey Maloof (author)

Publisher: Teacher Created Materials ISBN: 9781480750807

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.
