Scientific Method Graphic Organizer Diagrams

Graphic organizers can be used to help formulate and organize a scientific experiment.

A scientific experiment involves many steps, including:

  1. Observe, State Experimental Questions - After observing a phenomenon, you may wonder what is happening, and what caused it to happen. Write down your observations and your questions.
  2. Gather Information - Do background investigation on the phenomenon you are interested in. Find out what is known about it already.
  3. Formulate a Hypothesis - Write a statement that predicts what may happen in your experiment based on your knowledge and data from other experiments.
  4. Design an Experiment to Test Your Hypothesis - Determine a logical set of steps to be followed in your experiment.
    • Independent/Experimental Variable - Determine or guess which factors could affect the phenomenon you are studying. The experimental variable is the one variable the investigator chooses to vary in the experiment.
  5. Perform the Experiment
  6. Collect Data - Record the results of the investigation in a table or chart.
  7. Summarize Results - Analyze the data and note trends in your experimental results.
  8. Draw Conclusions - Determine whether or not the data support the hypothesis of your experiment.
