Scientific Method Signs

Our school Science Fair is fast approaching and many of my ELL students are anxious to participate! I love this because, for many of them, this will be their first science fair!

In preparation for the event, we have been reviewing the Scientific Method in class and completing some small experiments.

I've had a hard time finding a basic set of steps--they are all slightly different! Our textbook has five steps, posters in our school have six, online sources have all different I decided to make my own by combining what works best for my students' experiments in class.

I kept them pretty simple and there are seven in all. I am going to cut, laminate, and tape them to the white board.

Then we can write our process next to each one as we complete our in-class experiments.

The file is below...I hope the language is general enough so you can use them as well!

When is your school science fair? Are you doing anything in class related to it? This is the first year I've had so many participants and would love to hear what you are doing :)
